Millions of years have passed, but the earth has remained a singular miracle. Poets have written of its wonders--as well as of our failure to live up to our responsibilities as caretakers of the planet. In this sweeping anthology for young readers, award-winning author Jane Yolen has collected poems of C.S. Lewis, Joseph Langland, William Stafford, Christina Rossetti, and others who have paid tribute to our fragile world. These thirty-five voices cry with joy, grief, and hope for "our Mother the Earth, our Father the Sky."
