The Costs of Life

June 18, 2008
By Brooke Kilmer, Maine, NY

The Earth's gift is life
Costly but still free
Without wealth
One can still live happily

Imagine the globe's green as money
With blue depths of debt
A world revolving on capital things
Surely is not happy yet

Though true love comes with no price
And joy bursts easily
Perhaps on that the Earth lives
Rotating endlessly
