Earth

Born from fire

A swirling sphere, a vibrant blue,

Earth hangs in space, a precious view.

A tapestry of life, a swirling dance,

From mountain peaks to ocean's trance.

I. Ancient Cradle

Born from fire, a molten core,

Eons passed, a rocky floor.

Volcanoes raged, the oceans churned,

Life's first spark in hot springs burned.

Tiny microbes, the pioneers,

In nascent seas, they banished fears.

Algae bloomed, a verdant tide,

Oxygen released, the world defied.

II. Green Embrace

Land emerged, a rocky frame,

Simple life, a whispered name.

Plants unfurled, in sunlit grace,

Forests rose, a verdant embrace.

Dinosaurs thundered, giants grand,

Across the plains, a fearsome band.

Mammals scurried, seeking shade,

Evolution's dance, a story played.

III. Symphony of Species

Millions of creatures, great and small,

Fill every niche, and answer nature's call.

Birdsong flutters on the breeze,

Insects hum beneath the trees.

From polar bears in frozen white,

To vibrant coral, bathed in light,

Diversity thrives, a symphony,

A web of life, for all to see.

IV. Humanity's Footprint

But shadows rise, a growing stain,

Humanity's mark, a heavy chain.

Forests fall, the deserts spread,

Pollution's breath, a choking thread.

The oceans weep, with plastic choked,

Species vanish, their stories revoked.

A reckless march, a feverish pace,

Can we outrun this self-made race?

V. A Call to Action

Yet hope remains, a fragile spark,

A chance to heal, to mend the dark.

Renewable hearts, a greener stride,

Sustainable choices, where nature can confide.

Plant a tree, protect the shore,

Reduce, reuse, forevermore.

Conserve the wild, let nature sing,

For Earth's sweet song, a precious thing.

VI. A Future Woven Together

Let's build a future, hand in hand,

Where humankind and nature understand.

Respect the balance, the delicate thread,

For Earth sustains us, alive and fed.

A vibrant future, a tapestry new,

Woven with care, a vibrant hue.

Let generations yet to come,

Inherit Earth, a thriving home.

This sphere of blue, a precious gem,

Our only home, a diadem.

Let's cherish Earth, with all our might,

And bathe in her beauty, bathed in light.
