Gods Gift To Man


Before it all began
Gods gift to man
he gave us the earth

In thanks
we destroyed it

    Wow- love it.. It reminds me of the Cree poem

    “Only after the last tree has been cut down.
    Only after the last river has been poisoned.
    Only after the last fish has been caught.
    Only then will you find that money cannot be eaten.” (Report) Reply

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
