I was doing a bit of surfing and came across this site called “Planet Pals”, which has something to do with Earth Day. Anyway, I stumbled across the ‘kids count for Earth Day‘ page where a whole bunch of kids from all over the world wrote haiku about Earth day. A great competition and one that got their creative juices flowing.
There were lots of great entries, but one poem just stuck leapt out at the page at me and a tear formed in my eye. I thought to myself, “This kid gets it, she really gets what it is all about”. So, here is her poem.
If you could hold Earth,
Like a bird’s delicate egg,
You would not drop it
Stonington, Connecticut, USA
I will let you reflect on these words. They are strong.
Do not drop it.
