If the earth is a living being
Rejoice in her lovely song

Take home her humility
Spread wide her gifts

Wipe her grit
With your eyelash

Just like she
Lets you step on her grass

Shield her buds
Of loving kindness

Hold her fists
In a balanced stride

Let her dewdrops
Touch all souls

If the earth is a living being
Listen to her breath

Let her open
Let her close

Say yes to her multitude
Her grief and her grace

Let your arms open wide
And hug her from within

If the earth is a living being
Know yourself

To be her heart
