Our Precious Planet


The moon flanked by angelic stars at night
stirs hearts of lovers on earth, sea and sky
The sea waves chant a melodious beat
together with wild wind dance and compete

Colourful fishes in sea chase their prey
when they swim they seem to perform ballet
Birds break silence of the night with their tweets
rocking on swings made from tree boughs they greet

Slowly more sounds dilute these pure notes
Infant gold rays fondle my face down till throat
Roses and lilies fill air with fragrance
A pleasant light feeling fills my essence

There’s heaven of hope breathing in silence
I thank God for being on this precious planet
