Earth Day Poems

Kemptown Elementary student presenting her Earth poem

Written by Kemptown Elementary School Students

We have to work together
To make Earth a better place.
We have to do it now
Before it gets too late.
It might sound hard to you and me
But when we work together
It's actually really easy.
Work together and
Make the Earth the best place it can be.

- Danielle

Earth Day is a wonderful thing,
People laugh and people sing,
And all throughout the USA
People clean the Earth on Earth Day.

Plant some flowers or plant a tree,
And once you're finished, you will see,
That the Earth looks good as new,
And part of it was from you.

So on Earth Day, best day of the year,
Spread a little Earth Day cheer.
Plant a tree, or two, or three.
Then you say, "Good for me!"

- Emma W.
