#DayEarthSmiled – Tony the Star Guide

Sonnet to the Earth

How the wonder does thou feel from afar
Down gravity’s path round sol our near star
A cradle orbits carrying within
Earth’s offering of fertile wonderland
But how the better breeze from water flows
The life above the ocean waves does know
To build and craft a sail uncoils, outward
Literally the breath of life it sends
Aids in its journey outward Saturn bound
To where a pause, a second look, taken
A new eye of life’s creation shares us
Like one voyager glancing back to say
As an echoed human voice bids Goodbye
Oh, fair earth be staid, be peaceful, be kind.

– Tony Berendsen
