Had I the eyes to see

and breath to tell

I never could describe your wonders.

Had I ten lifetimes to live over

I never could learn your infinite diversity.

By morn's first light

I see the purple mountains

and feel the softest kiss

of mist on my skin.

The flowers in my garden

The birds at my window

all proclaim your beauty.

In the violent storm,we tremble

as Nature unleashes her power.

But you are steadfast

You endure.

We call you Earth

but you are home.

We are all Earth's children.
