I would like to share with you a wonderful poem written by the talented young author, Nishtha Jaiswal from India. At just eleven years of age, she has crafted a stunning tribute to Mother Earth and her boundless love for all life forms, including humans.
Take a moment to revel in Nishtha’s beautiful words as they transport you on an imaginative journey into the heart of our planet’s natural splendor.
Oh, mother! You have nurtured me
With hills full of greenery
The whole day I just want to see
The birds flying peacefully
Oh, mother! You have embraced me
Surrounded by the shady trees
The lakes, the ponds, the rivers, the sea
The purple orchid full of bees
Oh, mother! You have enlightened me
Knowledge as high as a mountain
Ambition vast like the sea
Kindness as sweet as a fountain
Oh, mother! You have blessed me
With beautiful rain, so sweet!
With thunder and lightening perfectly
arriving and leaving, bringing sleet
Oh, mother! There is a thing that I mourn
It seems that we have no time
For the pleasures you have for us borne
Why no time to sit and stare at what is yours and mine?
