Earth Poems  
Earth Poems, or “Things To Save” poems, are a good topic for any time the care of the environment is an issue at hand (which is all the time).

  “Starry Night”
by Kate D., age 7


Things to Save
The darkness of shadow-like
darting across the night like
black bullets, and the moon
shimmering like a sphere of
            glowing mass.
Let us save lush grass, green
as green ca be, but, best of all,
imagination glowing with joy aha,
images it is composed of, it is this
that is making the earth grow
with flavor and destination.
