Happy Earth Day

Ballerina Rose

Wild Petunia


All in a Day

A day is a perfect piece of time
to live a life, to plant a seed,
to watch the sun go by.

A day starts early, work to do,
beneath a brand-new sky.

A day brings hope and kindness, too...
a day is all its own.

You can make a wish,
and start again,
you can find your way back home.

Every bird and every tree
and every living thing
loves the promise in a day,
loves what it can bring.

There is a faith in morningtime,
there is belief in noon.

Evening will come whispering and shine a bright round moon.

A day can change everything,
given half a chance.

Rain could show up at your door
and teach you how to dance.

The past is sailing off to sea,
the future's fast asleep.

A day is all you have to be,
it's all you get to keep.

Underneath that great big sky
the earth is all a -spin.

This day will soon be over
and it won't come back again.

So live it well, make it count,
fill it up with you.

The day's all yours, it's waiting now...
See what you can do.
