Earth Day, Now and Forever

Sorry that I missed the celebration date, but I see Earth Day as being celebrated every day.

EARTH DAY

 by Jane Yolen

I am the Earth
And the Earth is me.
Each blade of grass,
Each honey tree,
Each bit of mud,
And stick and stone
Is blood and muscle,
Skin and bone.
And just as I
Need every bit
Of me to make
My body fit,
So Earth needs
Grass and stone and tree
And things that grow here
Naturally.
That’s why we
Celebrate this day.
That’s why across
The world we say:
As long as life,
As dear, as free,
I am the Earth
And the Earth is me.
I found the poem on the following site, The Center for Environmental Sustainability. (ces-ithaca.org)  Their mission which is listed below is to the point with a statement that all of us should take notice and consider for our future.

Mission Statement-The Center for Environmental Sustainability’s mission is to develop educational projects that will inspire communities in the transition towards environmental and economic balance.
