The Last Earth©

You serve us

Without fuss

Forever and ever

You came from the earth

You will return to the earth

An ear hears an earthly past

Earth could breathe the same breath

And the earth did flourish

Birth brought beauty and bounty

But not everyone could cherish

Creation and death

Earthly responsibilities relinquished

The light was extinguished

And Earth fell into an unearthly dearth

On the equinox

The earth still trembles.

It is too late

Nothing left to conflate

The earth is silent

Let my last night on earth

Not be the last earth
