Soil

When we talk of this earth

The planet that’s ours

Are we talking of the earth

The sea and the air

Or are we talking of the earth

From which our crops grow

Are we talking of the soil

Where all our food is grown

Do we talk of the soil

Warmed by the sun

When it is well watered

New life from it is sprung

And when it’s all over

The soil that we love

The soil that gives us our life

Settles on us above
