Water on a Lily

Her smile is bright as the October moon,
Her petals white as the snow beneath my feet,
Her stem; strong
Her mind wonders of curiosity as she drifts on
A green, leafy pad in the water,
The clouds above threaten to pour;
She awaits to drink up the knowledge;
To quench that thirst for
Wisdom once more,
Her heart big as the open sea;
Sings songs to every melody,
And yet as the world ‘round her is slowly dieing,
From the monster she calls man,
Mother earth drops her tears one last time;
And they fall like pouring rain,
That splashes;
Water on a lily
That used to sing,
But now in a big, big human world,
There is
Water on a lily.

I know, because of you and your kind hearted writing, more people will be inspired to take care of the Earth. You have so much love and care for Mother Earth and you show it greatly with your words and with your eyes and your smile and your tears and everything about you! This is my favorite poem of yours!!
