All Is not lost

All is not lost


Behold!  Man and nature walk together

side by side, forest and creature

trees, flowers and blades of grass

the wonder of nature’s beauty unsurpass


Man’s intrusion on earth and sky

pollutes the air, rivers run dry

empty jungles and dusty barren land

lifeless forest and hot desert sand


Yet nature forgives but all man’s misdeed

Life springs eternal in every little seed

Livens up places once so dearth

Returns to us our beautiful earth


But man must change most unreservedly

And embrace Mother Nature whole heartedly

That our children may continue to see

The great beauty of earth, sky and sea
