The Song of the World

By Blair Haft, age 12, Florida


When the winged creatures spread their feathers wide
And chirp their songs with regret radiating from their chests
When the elephants flatten the dirty bumps
Their hooves pounding the ground like drums

When the crickets squeak and the frogs croak
And the grass blades dance in sync with the wind
The trees wave their tanned arms up high
Shaking and swaying their hips in tune

When the army ants march, their feet lifting high
Little legs ticking upon the moist dirt
The song of Mother Nature will fill my head
Her rhythms and emotions warm my core
Holding me to the soil, united with earth
