The Earth is in our care
We are the Earths guardians
There is just one Earth, a world where we all live,
A beautiful place that has so much to give.
A spinning rock of life going round the sun,
And across its lands, wild animals run.
Within its oceans, the fish go swimming by,
Above its oceans, the albatrosses fly.
Among the creatures on this beautiful place,
There is one that calls itself the human race.
Unique upon this earth, free to move around,
In every part of the Earth, we are found.
Every sea we have crossed to lands anew,
Every continent we have travelled through.
We can touch every creature, learn their way,
Understand their lives and watch their young play.
We can change the landscape, change all that we see,
Only humankind has this ability.
We are the Earth’s guardians, to love and care,
To look after this world that all creatures share.
