Celebrate Earth Day with Poetry

footprints

How can you resist a title like this? Footprints on the Roof by Marilyn singer is full of wonderful earth poetry. My favorite is “Burrows”  – where we walk across the ground not seeing the “mazy metropolises” beneath the earth. I particularly like the last bit:

I try to tread softly:

a quiet giant

leaving only footprints

on the roof

You can read the entire poem here at Marilyn’s website.
