ADIEU TO APRIL 2019 By Polly Guerin

The earth was like a child again
That waxed poetic like a friend

Spring arrived in a color garden fair
With Daffodils and Tulips everywhere

Ever leaf was singing with roundelay
A chorus of chirping birds did replay

We felt spontaneous, giddy and gay
Wonderlust feelings go out and play

Then the winter chill re-appeared
The fierce windy blast cut our cheer

Frosty weather chilled our delight
Putting Spring forward overnight

Make up your mind oh fickle spring
Bring back sunshine and Spring bling

Then April rain came in fitful showers
Sent sweet kisses down for undue hours

Every ripple brook and pond was singing
Dewdrops from the sun were lingering

Then glorious days and golden weather 
Easter and Passover holidays together

Then the sun sang a darling lullaby
And squelched all the tears goodbye.

EARTH DAY 2019 By Polly Guerin

The world is in a lull and weeping
Yet many people still are sleeping

White hunters strike, club baby seals
Their cruel acts for profit are surreal

Plastic seas kill, no chance for re-birth
Pollution covers the sickened earth

Sound the alarm precious species vanishing
At an overwhelming rate is their banishing

Sea creatures and corral reefs now at risk
Caught in nets they perish, do not exist

The angry seas and rising angry waters
Devour towns, begin the human slaughter

Families driven off the barren sick land
Deforestation is the new monied brand

Overwhelming climate change day by day
Do it now, Save our planet, this I pray

Restore us back to Earth Day's nature
Or does our fate depend upon the Creator?

Protest and petition loud and clear for change
Waste no time to put the blame lets rearrange

Write in and be counted among the first
Proclaim the urgency, end folly and reverse

Activate, do it now, join the outcry, be counted
Before looming catastrophe is fully mounted 

Awake and join the multitude in the planet cry
Before all hope is forever lost and we may die.
