earth day poetry readings
Everyday is earth day,
If it's cold or wet or hot
Pitch in to save the planet
It's the only one we've got.
They're really half a world away,
There's nothing we can do,
"Rain Forests" might be just two words
To kids like me and you.
They're really somewhere over there.
I may not even see
A rain forest in my entire life.
What should it mean to me?
I know that in these rain forests
That I may never see,
Half the world's plants, animals and insects
Live in harmony.
I know that trees are being cut,
Faster than we know.
These trees are where the creatures live,
So now where will they go?
So, I know they're half a world away,
Rain Forests I can't see,
But I can learn and understand
Because the future starts with me!
