Match 22, 2016 Poets United / What is Lost--dVerse

An Eco poem....

What is Lost

i walk along the path       follow the trail          and grieve

what is lost                       what will be lost      what is not to return

what is dumped into rivers   waste everywhere    what is thrown away

what is kept                      how to live simply     how to conserve

how to step lightly           without destroying      what is loved

what is needed                  what is still here          spring is here again

the birds that vanished      are returning                will there still be a here

for them                            are all the trees cut down          is the air foul

will they find something to eat               will they sing again this year

Note:  In response to Sherry's post of Eco Poems.   It isn't inspired by the name of groups of birds...but I think will will due?

Yay, happy to read your beautiful eco poem....that is the question....will there still be a here? Love this, Annell.

If I didn't have the birds to hear singing it would be a sad day indeed.

I feel your passion here, Annell. I'm so glad you were inspired by the eco poems. And I love your vanishing birds here. My heart aches for us to care for this incredible place we've been gifted.

Annell, this would fit the prompt at Midweek Motif on climate change, I believe........a sad and beautiful poem.
