‘The Air, Sea & Sand’ – A Poem

A little bit of a random one this week, but hopefully you’ll like it. I thought I’d share a poem with you which has been stuck on my fridge since last September. It was something that I wrote when I was in Year 9 at school and unbeknown to me, something that my darling Nana had kept hold of for 13 years. I’d completely forgotten about it until Mum found it while sorting through Nana’s things.

I’m certainly not saying it’s fantastic, but I think it’s shown me how passionate I was and am for both writing and our environment. 

The Air, Sea & Sand

The earth has so many wonderful places,
Populated by thousands of races,
But do they care that they destroy the land,
The air, sea and sand.

Even the tallest isolated mountain, is not untouched,
Polluted by the ever increasing human clutch,
As climbers explore further into the geography of the world,
Danger looms in every fog swirl,
As the snow caps melt, the water collects in streams,
Home to many shoals of bream,
But the water is polluted by human hands,
Nothing is done and the earth just stands,

The valleys carved by moving ice,
Of which we can look and take a slice,
But now the land is claimed by the races,
Who build houses and farm places,
The stream flows down the valley,
Through the marsh like a car rally,

Beautiful flowers bloom in the grass,
The blue water sparkles and reflects light like glass,
The soft chalky cliffs home to many animals,
They protect birds and mammals,
But soon they will be reclaimed by the sea,
To cover the sand in the spree,

The sea laps at the beeches,
Swage from human homes seeps in leaches,
Covering the water in a dreadful scum,
But will the cost be more than a handful sum,

The earth has so many wonderful places,
Populated by thousands of races,
But do they care that they destroy the land,
The Air, Sea and Sand?
