Our World

A place where many flowers grow
Bluebells, roses, and lilies
A garden.

A place where there are lots of trees
Oak, maple, and pine
The forest.

A place where there are animals
Deer, buffalo, and fish
An Earth.

A place where there are people
African, American, European, Asian
On land.

A place where there are living things,
Flowers, trees, animals, people
Our world.

Something I didn’t decide to submit, but wrote for the 2013 Nature Poetry Contest at Roscoe Wilson Elementary School.
