The love of Lady Earth

The sun looked down one day
And saw a frozen Lady Earth beneath him lay
The sparkling stars hanging all around
A dazzling glow on her face found
He gazed down with love in his eyes
And willed the vivid life in Lady Earth to rise
Soon she awoke to springtime’s mystical show
The winding river, a poetry in flow
Flowers and blossoms perfumed the sweet air
As she stretched her green arms in prayer
The loving gaze of sun poured over her heart
This rose in myriad hues, a perfect art
He saw her breast foam and heave and swell
And felt the thunder sob around the knell
And when he was sure that she will for him live
And for his warmth and love will always strive
He let mysterious wind move over her lands
And out sprung many human bands
And slowly her children, the hungry people
Used fire to cause many a ripple
And Lady Earth a fragile shadow of her former self
Looked wistfully towards the sun remembering herself
