There she is, spinning round,

Pregnant again.

Those gone by shall never be found

Men will search in vain.


Earth has renewed herself,

She's big and ready to burst.

She has reviewed herself,

For being under a curse.


Rise up Earth, and journey forward

You've already completed many turns.

Rise up Earth, the journey is forward

Though your path is hazardous, and burns.


You have seen many generations come and go,

At the beginning, your rotation was very fast,

Now you've slowed down, and so

The present is now taken for the past.


Can you give us a clue to where we are going?

For you continually turn around the burning flame,

Humans are born, and they go around not knowing

If life is real, or is it just a game.
