Trees and Bees-Constanza

I pass beneath these lovely trees
     That shades me from heat’s noonday sun.
     They share fresh breath with everyone.

Through quiet mouths I hear their pleas,
     “Please help the earth so we can live
     And in return clean air we’ll give.”

It’s up to us to plant more trees!
     To our children we must relate,
     They hold in their sweet hands our fate.

Our chain of life depends on these;
     Heavy laden with healthy fruit
     Sustained by clean soil at its root.

Survival of the honey bees,
     For them to live and pollinate
     Gives dire thoughts to contemplate.

As Earth’s heat rises by degrees
     Our whole world’s countries must unite
     To help end global warming’s plight.

We must insure we will not freeze.
     With opened eyes to teach our youth
     The urgent fight beyond this truth.


I pass beneath these lovely trees
Through quiet mouths I hear their pleas,
It’s up to us to plant more trees!
Our chain of life depends on these;
Survival of the honey bees,
As Earth’s heat rises by degrees
We must insure we will not freeze.

Note: This was written simply so children could comprehend.

    Hi, my dear friend Connie! You penned an outstanding poem to promote clean and green environment. A worth publishing poem with your outstanding form. I love your poem so much and the constanza (the form you created, am I right). I wrote a poem in this form when I was still new @ soup & it was not easy, but I loved it & enjoyed so much. So amazing. I hope I can try again next time. TYTYSSM for sharing & your inspiring comments on my poem. More blessings! love lots & biggest hugs, Leonora

    connie, please keep me informed if Soup ever accepts your form or not. that would be so cool if they did. I would love for them to put the 5/7 trochee up , but unfortunately I never see anyone here using it except for ME!!! hahaha. I have plenty of examples now too. IS this a brand new one on trees? Can't remember if I saw it before or not. Sure cute and good for children!!

    Connie a wonderful Constanza, and a great message that we need to take seriously - Connie

    Thank you so much Craig. I have submitted it to Soup a while back but have heard no reply as yet. I would be so honored if they would accept my form at Soup. I quite agree with you about what we teach our children. I am very pleased that in some schools they are being taught to care for our environment. We planted a tree for each of our children and our youngest planted her own tree when in girl scouts that and all are still growing at our home. My granddaughter's tree will be next. Mahalo

    Sage advice Connie and excellent write in your awesome form! I wish you would submit it to the soup, it is worthy, very worthy. BTW, relative to your theme. We must be cautious how we teach our children about stewartship because an ill informed zealot can do more harm than good. They need to learn true forestry to know how to optimize resources.
