The greens of summer fade,
Annuals wilt and die.
Autumn glory flies
Too quickly by.
Then winter returns to blanket the ground,
Its white protection will nourish
Throughout nature’s sleeping darkness.
Each spring we celebrate
The resurrection of creation,
Renewal and hope fills our hearts
As we witness the Canadian seasons
Reflecting the cycle of life.
This irreplaceable earth expects
Our reuse, recycling and conservation
Or future generations will be robbed
Of the bounty given by God.
A clothesline, washing dishes by hand,
And taps turned off quickly –
Will surely help the cause!
