Earth Day By Jane Yolen

I am the Earth and the Earth is me

Each blade of grass

Each Honey Tree

Each bit of mud

and stick

and stone

Is blood and muscle, skin and bone.

And just as I need every bit of me

to make my body fit,

So Earth needs

Soil

Water

and tree

and all the things that grow here

naturally.

I am the Earth and the Earth is me.
