Our Dear Earth
One blue sky above us
One ocean lapping all our shores
One Earth so green and round
Who could ask for more
And because I love you
I'll give it one more try
To show my rainbow race
That it's too soon to die.
These lyrics were written by Pete Seeger to the song titled: My Rainbow Race
I heard this song performed by The Shaw Brothers many years ago, and the words always stuck with me.
I thought it was an appropriate post for this Earth Day 2011.
