Poem Twenty-Two

Earth Day – 2013

April 22, 2013

 

The air is thick with birds

Skinks skittle at my feet

Once upon a time

Lake Erie was dead

Today the water is clear

Only pollen fills the air as

Nature works overtime

I can’t remember the last time

“they” told us the end was near

clean water, clean air

the defenders of wildlife cheer

Maybe Earth Day really did come true

Or maybe it’s just because

My subscription to Audubon has expired
