Pouring warmth upon the new born day
Sun calls to order earthly kin.
Sends sunbeam subjects then to say
Let the day’s activity begin!
Flowers open up their sleepy eyes,
Animals their stirring noises make,
Birds begin to chirp in glad surprise
Relatives now out upon the lake.
Dog alerts at sound of baby cry,
Cat arches back and tiptoes to the door.
Mother wakens with a sigh
Father’s feet upon the floor.
Traffic noises out upon the street
Remind responsibility this new day,
Tasks each person now to greet
Humans have no time to play.
But nature turns to greet the sun
No indoor-living they desire,
For natures business is their fun
Until they should at night retire.
No doctor tends to nature’s need,
But humans jealous of their plays
Ravage earth to pander human greed
And earth in turn their greed repays.
With sickness, quality of life degrade
Until at last we humans now dismayed
Recognize mistakes we’ve made,
Material lifestyle only then we’ll trade.
Then greet the sun as nature does each day,
Spend time outdoors as much we can
The rules of nature now obey
Equilibrium to restore again.
