Rise and shine, Earth Your beauty is Marvelous, Earth The pollution, Earth It has destroyed you Yes, my child I am damaged The destruction mocks my beauty My wild prairies My frost kisses, here and there My cool, spring breezes My autumn leaves My yellow daffodils, just bloomed They have no respect, Earth Not for you, Earth Not for your scenery, Your wetlands, Your rainforests, You, Earth It will end, my child When all of my human beings decide to end it.
