Are there any poems about the environment?

    Children playing, laughing
    Running into that glorious blue sea,
    Swimming to another shore, untiring
    With screaming gulls and exclusive hotels
    And the magic of yachts anchored at bay
    It’s a wonderful day
    They are itching, eyes burning, nose running-
    What we feared is true
    No more this treasure – for the children or me?

    Wetlands by Greta Akili

    O’ Wetlands! How I mourn for you,
    Death is close at hand,
    I am called many names,
    Estuarine, mangrove swamp, marsh, bottomlands
    And surrounded by mangrove forests,
    With oysters stuck to my roots,
    Fishes live and depend on me, to feed spawn and grow,
    Crabs have homes, tunnels of holes around me,
    Turtles pay a visit every year to lay,
    And birds of green, little blue and yellow night herons
    Reflect upon me.

    I also help to protect you, I take in carbon and
    Release oxygen for you to breathe
    I function like a strainer and a sieve to filter pollutants
    From the sea, making it safe for you to swim
    I hear two thousand a new millennium
    Will I be here for my eco-system and other sisters to survive and flourish?
    I am now threatened. I have been cut I am bleeding
    Garbage is dumped in and around me I cannot breathe
    Filth- Sewage flows into me- I will become sick

    Development hotels and airports are building around us
    We are dying. Who are the powers that be? Does anyone care?
    Will we be saved? Is it already too late?
    I hope that we can be saved,
    Because in saving us the benefits and gains are so rich,
    That we can become millionaires together with MOTHER EARTH
