Earth in all it’s Beauty

The day drains away
Slowly the sun sets
The moon rises to the sky,
The stars move into sight,
Smiling down on me
The night life rushes
As beautiful lights touch the sky
Unknowingly, I admire their magnificence
Yet, I wonder what is happening below them
Aimlessly, my eyes wander across the sky
Night erodes into day
The lights turn off,
The stars fade into their sleep
The moon stops smiling
And the sun wakes up
She caresses Earth with her warmth
Wrapping us in a blanket of light
Children play in her beauty
Women bask in her rays
Laughter fills the air,
The smell of flowers blooming swirls around noses
As we float from season to season
The Earth is no longer stuck in a wintry state
Now, he is filled with beauty, activeness, and warmth

The author's comments:
I would like all readers to know that this article was to make us feel completely selfless. The Earth was given to us as a gift, and we should take care of him. I wrote this poem to show Earth's real potential and what he really looks like. We should admire the gift that was so generously given to us.
