In Praise of Creation

Praise the heartbeat of the universe
Praise the science that burst the heavens open
letting us glance at the cosmic dawn

Praise the stars burning bright
Praise the ones that died quickly
and seeded the Milky Way

Praise the sun, hot ball of glowing gases
Praise gravity that holds everything in its orbit
and gives us a home called Earth

Praise our planet made of metals and minerals
Praise the waters that cover its surface
and the atmosphere that protects it

Praise the arctic ice that moderates climate
Praise the seasons, praise the rains
and the ecosystems that sustain life

Praise, act, and protect
Because action speaks louder than praise
and praise is a call for action
