Nature is our Future

a poem by Gitanjali Mitra

Nature is a beautiful endowment
It beckons, it’s an enticement
One can find here flora and fauna
It’s full of greenery
It projects a beautiful imagery
Ever visited a park before
Ever spent time ashore
If you haven’t tried to be a part of it
Don’t miss, and try to gain it
Each season has its own beauty
To protect nature is our duty
It is an unending bounty, yet
Many of the species are endangered
It’ high time that it is preserved
Cause exhaustion of resources has no end
Even a little generous planting of a sapling will do
Feeding birds and caring for animals
Let’s start a new Green Trend
Let’s turn over a new leaf
Let’s make an effort to conserve nature at our own end
