Oh, Mother-Earth, I Am Your Offspring
POETRY FORMAT, 16 Jan 2017
Oh, mother-earth, I am yours offspring,
I am your loving humbled son,
I spent all my life wandering,
To find new wonders, one-by-one!
My mother-earth, I sing of thee
In thanks for bread and mirthful wine,
How fragrant are fruits on your tree,
They are delicious, divine!
I’m fond of yours animals and birds,
Yours mountains, plains and sparkling seas,
I cannot find the proper words,
In abundant praise let me bend my knees…
