A Poem for Earth Day

Louise Finn, CND

Silent Psalm

 

Slowly, the cool dark

earth beneath my feet exhales.

Slugs leave silvered trails.

 

Tree trunks breathe, listen.

Mists rise, coiling up like smoke

swallowed in stillness.

 

Towering elms, midget

walnuts, still-green mossy logs,

tangled ivy, fallen

 

oak leaves floating red-

veined in silky-soft sea-grass,

seagulls’ feathers, frisky

squirrels and that dear orange

butterfly – All praise our God!
