Let the Earth Breathe by Ellie Stock

LET THE EARTH BREATHE

 

 

Let the Earth breathe!

Let its heart beat,

            pulsing and firing the fruit of its seed.

Let four winds tease,

            air bright and clean.

            converging and swirling through life’s mystery.

 

Let waters wreathe.

Let rivers be,

            pristine and free from deep valleys to seas.

Let singing streams

            stir slumbering leagues,

            awakening the dreamer and changing the dream.

 

            Let mountains rise!

            Let forests thrive—

                        primal communities birthed to survive.

            Let kindred be wise,

                        not compromise

                        their courage and care for greed’s beckoning lies.

 

Let oceans race!

Let new waves chase

            ancient tides washing ashore cosmic grace.

Let rhythms of peace,

            still conflict’s pace,

            emerging, connecting in trust’s healing place,

bold creatures revealing hope’s eternal face,

beloving, one dwelling, in Earth’s sacred space.
