Speak sister,
Talk in the ancient language,
Let us hear you rush,
Oh, river-music, awake!

Speak brother,
Tell us your tidings,
The old and the new,
Oh, stormwind, let you hear!

Speak siblings,
You wise old,
Creak and groan your lament,
Oh, trees of all woods!

Hark, human, listen
To wind and sea roaring,
To the sound of the leaves
And to the song of deciduous trees!

Hark, human, listen
To Mother Nature's choirs.
Sing with them again
Time-honoured songs!
The language of Mother Earth

It is indeed the language of Mother Earth. What I love is the humanist approach in this poem. It doesn't need any correction from my point of view, and I find that your approach has really worked wonders in this poem. Well done.

Is it any reason why there is a figure of speech that tells us to stop and smell the roses from time to time? There is a beautifully-choreographed world all around us and it's all too easy to miss it as we get caught up in the busyness of our lives.

Tis a nice poem for sure. Meaningful with a hint of something else in it. And well written. Kudo's :+fav:

I wouldn't be a good writer myself if I couldn't read between the lines. As a hopeful author I pride myself a bit on it
