Gaia

Suzy Carswell 1995 (Taranaki)



A bearer of life
The Earth is our Mother
She is one of a kind
No planet like others

With an ocean that ebbs
And rivers that flow
Like waterway webs
That allow life to grow

This world is our home
We must treat it as such
And remember, without Earth
We don't have very much.
