You Give Us

Oh Mother of Earth
on you we rely

Who cares for us
though you we try

When you break down
in rage we cry

Yet because of us
you live or die

Each year in Spring
is new life born

And with vibrant colors
the earth you adorn

When new green foliage
by trees are worn

 It’s not the Winter
for which we mourn

Oh Mother, oh Mother
of Earth in all

The Winter, the Spring
the Summer and Fall

You care for us
both great and small

The return be done
by us one and all!

    1. Thanks Becky! I dearly loved that picture when I saw it and have been waiting for the right opportunity to use it 🙂 Blessings, Terri


  1. I’ve just written a quote a day or so ago that fits with this so nicely:

    When we are inspired to project something positive into the universe, in turn, the Creator of all things returns the gift. -Kay Salady

    This is beautiful, Terri! xoXox
