Earth Day


(April 22, 1970)

Didn’t we teach ourselves to sing

And sing the dance

And dance the pipes,

And didn’t we measure color and line

And sculpture words to poem—

And didn’t we wake ourselves to dream

And dream to hope

And hope to pray,

And didn’t we help ourselves to love

And love to think of joy?

See how the sun sets grey and grim —?

—Come! Let’s imagine Tomorrow!
