Happy Earth Day!

I am the Earth
And the Earth is me.
Each blade of grass, 
Each honey tree, 
Each bit of mud, 
And stick and stone
is blood and muscle, 
Skin and bone.

And just as I
Need every bit
Of me to make
My body fit,
So Earth needs 
Grass and stone and tree
And things that grow here

That's why we
Celebrate this day.
That's why across
The world we say:
As long as life, 
As dear, as free, 
I am the Earth 
And the Earth is me.
-Jane Yolen
