A passion for this Earth I feel
Compassioin which is so, so real.
My blood flows through earth’s laval veins
My tears reflected in her rains
The winds which circulate the Earth
Breath in and out of me from Birth
The cyclic rhythms of her tides
Are matched by how I feel inside
Yet most remarkable of all
Open your heart to hear the call
The essence which I know is me
Is here in everything I see.
