Our environment is stressed, and it is not a hidden fact anymore. It is alarming and it is our duty to save it before it is too late. After all, it is because of our activities that our ecological balance has been disturbed. The occurrences of natural calamities are causing loss of lives.
The revolving Earth spoke in a somber voice;
Its resources are diminishing, lost are its joys.
The trees could do so much for you and me,
If only we stop our chopping spree.
The Earth is a beautiful home that cares for us like no other. In return, we have to give it the same love that the Earth gives us. This is the basic premise of ‘Dear Earth’ by Avvaiyar. The poem is like a plea that one can not escape. The author showcases a pen’s power in only 25 words. The poem provides for hours of thinking after the first read. The illustrations done by Murali Nagaphuza complement the piece beautifully and are enticing.
