Precious Earth

Water

Touch the beach shore with a toe
Sandy seaweed, shells that glow.
Silky turquoise gliding in
Colourful paradise lies within.

Ocean’s currents moving slow
Mesmerising fish below
Swimming outward not too long
Can be heard the whales’ deep song.

Air

Up into the blue clear sky
Beyond the fluffy clouds let’s fly
Touch a rainbow with our hands
Far below the green soft lands

Deeper into unknown space
Shooting stars across our face
Airless, weightless spirits free
Moving, blending harmony.

Fire

Orange, red and amber light
Curling flames warm up the night.
Melting metals, silver gold
Shaping into tales untold.

Craters leave their ancient mark
Giants born out of a spark.
Great golden ball lives through the night
To turn the darkness into light.

Earth

A great blue marble seen from space
Our home, that we know is our place.
Mountains, hilltops, valleys green
Blue trees, red trees in between.

Fields of dreams, fields of flowers
Animals, humans, it’s all ours.
Mother fertile giving seed
Precious is your gift, our need.
