Poems from our Earth Day Picnic

Hail Mother, who art the earth

Hallowed be thy soil, rocks and flora



Poem #1 from Pat O'Connor


Hail Mother, who art the earth

Hallowed be thy soil, rocks and flora

That nourish and support all life

Blessed be thy wind that gives us breath

And thy waters that quench, bathe and refresh

All living things.

Holy Earth- as one-we praise your majesty, grace and wonder.


- Bill Flaherty

From Earth Prayers




Poem #2 by Pat O'Connor


We have forgotten who we are

We ask forgiveness

We ask for the gift of remembering

We ask for the strength to change.


We have forgotten who we are.


from UN Environmental Sabbath Program
