Earth Day - Jane Yolen

Earth Day Poetry For Students And Children

Earth Day was first celebrated on April 22, 1970 throughout the United States. Then to increase the awareness of the clean environment, the Earth Day was celebrated every year in the whole world. This year, the global theme of the 45th anniversary of ‘Prithvi Dill’ is inspiring everyone to come forward for environmental protection. On the occasion of Earth Day every person will have to learn to use natural resources economically, then the earth will be blossomed with various forms of life, fulfilling our needs.

Our planet earth is very beautiful and life-giving. This unique planet is the third planet of the Solar System, which came into being today about 4.5 billion years ago. Life has developed in various forms on this planet as a result of various complex processes and delicate combinations since the millions of years of earth’s birth. Due to the unique structure of the planet Earth, distance from the sun and other physical causes, life has been found here.

Earth Day Poetry by Jane Yolen

I am the Earth
And the Earth is me.
Each blade of grass,
Each honey tree,
Each bit of mud,
And stick and stone
Is blood and muscle,
Skin and bone.

And just as I
Need every bit
Of me to make
My body fit,
So Earth needs
Grass and stone and tree
And things that grow here

That’s why we
Celebrate this day.
That’s why across
The world we say:
As long as life,
As dear, as free,
I am the Earth
And the Earth is me.
