Mother EarthA Poem by artistrypoet
Oh mother of the earth and the keeper of the lands.
You are graced with the oceans and hold the lantern of time
Bearer of truth and the mystics that dwell with man
Whom have chartered the star and walked along thy shores.
You are the waver of souls and the key to another throne
All nations that bear you as their mother and dwell in your heart,
Why do you forsake those who pull your harp?
How you labour and raise before us the bearers of your children
And they dwell in your house and wonder free
You are wise and master of us all,who would stand before you no less?
All the nations that bear you offerings and gods you wave and surrender not,
You are the gateway to eternal truth, the sacred robe and the food of thought.
Oh splendid mother earth, how you give your limitless self
But man in your wake not learn your lesson in true light
You ask for little but simple honour and earth to open in pure heart
Man has a purpose in your labour and may raise to your call,
Then oh mother earth call in love and blossom pure gold
Gold, most splendid in the form of nature.
Far removed of clay and other of mans creation
Wash away the clay and raise in splendour and blossom to awake the hunger
Oh splendid mother earth of jewel sapphire and saffron,
The heart of all nations and the food of salvation,
You lean with the universe and are the splendour of majesty
Robe to lead man to the procession of eternal life.
Oh great whole and graceful mother, you are the heart of our nations
You have laboured and conquest time and the rock that raise in the wake of man
May all nations rise to awe at your aura and see your eternal beauty and flame.
