earth lifts ragged arms to the sky
to clouds that block the sun
and the fields grow mean and dry
where fresh rivers used to run

around the fringes of the islands
the sea swells high and dead
and the snow melts from the mountains
while the nations shake with dread

and I fear that we have seen the best
this old world has to give
and it’s down to us to find the zest
to help our world to live

earth fingers

  1. We’ll have a part to play, that’s for sure.
    And we must play it. Each of us to the best of our ability.
    But the strength we need . . . we must still draw it from this dear world.
