Children’s Poems

Another wonderful poem from Daisy Proctor, age 7, from Chepstow:

.

Dear Earth

.

I will miss

the forest owlet’s big eyes.

.

I will miss

The Fire-crown’s long beak.

.

I will miss

The cute Malabar Civet.

.

I will miss

the Iberian Lynx

My favourite.

.

The Hawaiian crow

as black as Halloween

.

The South China Tiger’s

stripes

.

The beaver’s strong teeth.

.

The Seychelle bat’s

deep purple wings.

.

The Maui dolphin’s leap.

.

The Asiatic cheetah’s speed.

.

Suni, the Northern white rhino

died two years ago.

Only one male remains.

.

And I’m already missing George

the Pinta Island Tortoise

now extinct.

A poem from Sandi Leibowitz:

.

Thank You, World

.

Thank you, Sky, for wind and cloud,

breezes quiet, thunder loud.

Thank you for the moon at night,

for rain and for the sun so bright.

.

Thank you, Sea, for foam and sand,

waves that rush to meet the land,

starfish, seaweed, seals at play,

coral reef and palm-fringed bay.  

.

Thank you Earth, for mountains high,

for rivers long and deserts dry,

for redwoods, violets, apples, too,

for grass so green and morning dew.

.

Thank you for the iceberg’s chill,

cherry’s sweetness, skylark’s trill.

Thank you for each glittering star.

Thank you, World, for all you are.

I love you Earth

The way you help us to grow plants

And to let us and nature walk on you

Earth never feel down you’re one of the best

things in the world

I love you Earth

The way you shimmer on bright blue days

Your lovely blue light

I love you sky
