Keepers of the Earth

Keepers of the Earth

 

Beneath the peaceful respite of shade

Several games are being played

Colourful hats point to crystal sky

With matching outfits of brilliant dyes

These shy creatures seldom encountered:

They joyfully gather while others slumber

Around their tree stump homes

A feast is prepared by gnomes.

They are the keepers of the Earth

Who’ve been around since Nature’s birth               

With age and epochs now a distant past

They have learnt that but a few things last:

Like the peaceful respite of shade –

That love and joy will always trump hate

 

Francois Hermanus Steyn – 2014
