Join me and listen to some Earth Day songs.
Join me by zoom, face time, video share,
you tube and telephone—synchronize now—
sing some, cry some, talk some, lonesome
It’s the novel virus keeping us in,
they say, unless we’re serving our countries.
It’s the novel corona virus caused
Or we’d be out there.
Join in to sing with Michael,
What about sunrise? What about rain?
or ask with Joni, Don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what you've got
'Till it's gone
Join in O beautiful for spacious skies.
O, think of space, let’s dance, in and out of
our little square screens, dance for joy, for fun,
for dinner, for sanctuary,
For love of story, love of Tinkerbell—
remember her? She faded when children
stopped believing in fairies. And we clapped
and clapped. She thrived. Let’s do as much
for our dear earth.
