A Blue Jewel On Black Velvet

planet earth is my special home, and this home I love
the mountains I love, the desert I love, and the sea I love
and I especially love, fluffy white clouds above!

altogether, I receive pleasure from my home
like if holding sand, in the palm of my hand
or walking upon dirt, rocks, clay or even mud!

truly, I feel happiness is enjoying home
like a walk on a sunny day, in the month of may
seeing flowers and trees, grass and leaves!

and I feel, bliss is the enjoyment of home
like whistling a tune, in the month of june
feeling cool water, air, and warmth of the sun!

all of these aspects of home, are life's necessity
anywhere on earth I roam, I am enjoying home
this planet is special, this blue jewel is my home!
