"Dear Earth"


Dear Earth
I want to thank you
for this beautiful forest
and the oceans
and the deserts too.
Do you hear these little birds singing in the trees?
They thank you too!
Thank you for the skies that are painted so magically!
Thank you for the moon that watches us sleep- no matter where we are!


You have given us so much love with your gifts.
How do we thank you?

Elephants, Rhinos. monkeys and sea creatures
all these animals make up our precious world.
We must help to save them in our world.

I look at the world you have given us and you have made me so happy.
Flowers and butterflys, and this world to run in and play!
How gracious you are!

I hear the rivers that whisper sweet songs
as they travel out to sea.
And I see the mountains
that reach clear to the sky.
I see the painted skies that swirl
around me like a hug,
and the rain drops
that fall to feed our thirsty earth.
Stars that reach as high as they can into the sky,
and twinkle down in all of our worlds.
The wide wide oceans that stretch their arms across the seas.
And the moon that watches us sleep at night.

So many gifts you have given us.
Thank you Earth Mother.

Twinkle twinkle little star
How I wonder what's below so far
All the creatures big and small
Living on the earth and all
Living in such harmony
What a nice world for you and me!
Twinkle twinkle Tweedles' star
Shining across the country far
On land,sea or in the air
Everyone knows how much Tweedles cares!

Happy Earth Day, Tweedles!!

Tweedles, that was beautiful. I love how much you truly appreciate the world around you. I can sense it when I visit. I do to, I love being outside exploring, sniffing, running. You look so sweet in that picture with your jacket. I wish I were there with you. I will close my eyes and imagine that I am. Are you ready Tweedles?? Lets go, there is a squirrel and look at that bird up there. Wow something smells so good, it must be those pretty flowers. Lets run...tag you are it Tweedles...oh you got me. That was so fun. I have to go now, but thanks for the imaginary playtime.

Yesterday we took Scarlet for a walk between downpours and stopped to watch a flock of little sparrows in a small tree ~ I couldn't help but to think how much you would have liked them Tweedles. I felt you were with us in spirit from across the miles.

hey Tweedles,

My sweetest friend! Such wonderful woofs to our dear Earth! You are so observant of all Earth has to offer, and then you so lovingly put your thoughts together and woof the most amazing poems! I think Mother Earth is very touched by your beautiful tribute to her and I bet she will reward you with a rainbow or two! :->

Tweedles, What a beautiful way to honor the Earth on its day! Every day should be its day... It gives us so many gifts but we must stop and notice them. You always do, and you remind us to notice them too.

Thanks, sweet Tweedles.

Frank The Tank said...

Earth day is so special, the world gives us such wonderful gifts, tremendous treasures and infinite love, it gives us shelter and food and all our animal friends, I love the world I live in and celebrate it each day, on my country walks I thank the birds, the trees and the stream, the lake and the clouds, I sit on the mountain top and hear the wind whisper my name and I softly whisper thank you, I see all the beauty this earth has to offer, I thank the sun, the moon and the stars and send bubbles in the breeze to you Tweedles and thank you, thank you for being my friend and for loving this earth too! Happy Earth day! Love, Licks and Hugs from your friend Frank x x x x x

Hi Tweedles, thanks for your sweet comment about our MeeMoo. She will be missed so much. We love the earth too! We show our love by recycling and using organic products and helping animals in need and planting and composting and I could go on and on! But she deserves for us to be good to her!
