Earth Villanelle

By Wayne Visser

Earth needs no saving by you or by me
For nature transcends our will to survive
With branches and roots spread wide on life’s tree
 
The green of the land, the blue of the sea
The cycle of seasons always revive
Earth needs no saving by you or by me
 
Progress misleads in the name of the free
For nature is meant to flourish and thrive
With branches and roots spread wide on life’s tree
 
The shade of the woods, the flow of the streams
The greatest of climbs and deepest of dives
Earth needs no saving by you or by me
 
We shoot for the stars as far as we see
And remake the world as we search and strive
With branches and roots spread wide on life’s tree
 
The planet won’t need another decree
Only our passion to keep life alive
Earth needs no saving by you or by me
With branches and roots spread wide on life’s tree
