No Man's Land

Is there yet any land
   left untouched by man
Like there was in the long agos
   upon the isles of the Galapagos
Where varied specis lived and thrived
   where adaptation was alive

Is there still some small space
   where man has left no trace
Perhaps in the jungles of Brazil
   out upon some ancient hill
I have a notion that in the oceans
   lie the only lands unconquered by man

For not even space it seems
   is safe from man's reach or dreams
We've ventured far beyond the Earth
   to explore and decide its worth
Yet in the end, it doesn't matter much
   we're all just little bits of cosmic dust

    I actually thought about Greenland as I read through the first stanza.97% of the snow and ice surface has melted lately..a very relative subject in this excellent rhyme,Tanya.Thanks for stopping by:) Take Care,Arild

    But you left your mark right here with this lovely write of yours Tanya! There might be some place in all this world man hasn't walked on, but I doubt that there's any worthwhile places! What a wonderful poem to express all of this so eloquently, the Earth, near Space, the Ocean, all of which man dominates! What a remarkable piece I must say! Great Work!!
