NATURE STRIPPED – A Poem

Posted on Posted in Biodiversity, Climate Change, Education & Advocacy, Green Living
  1. Do not look upon me

With shame, pity or sadness

Do not despise my sad ugly state

For I have not always been this way

 

  1. Once upon a time

My leaves were green and shiny

Colourful flowers graced my head

And my crown was of delicious fruits

  1. Once upon a time

My rivers flowed with clean water

Fresh and refreshing was each breath of air

Many were the wildlife in my big forests

 

  1. Once upon a time

Seas were a beauty to behold

Void of plastic, oil or all that spoil

Fish were plenty as birds were happy

  1. So I appeal to you

If I have ever made you smile

If you have found comfort under my shade

Or pleasure in my many shades and shapes

 

  1. So I appeal to you

If you desire my joy and wellbeing

As much as I cherish your health and laughter

Arise and plead my case, let me find a saviour in you.
