By Amian Lizama, student at St. Catherine Academy, Belize City, Belize
The chill from the autumn wind
Forces the mahogany trees to sing
Walking down the forests paths
Makes me feel its warmth
Knowing that the forest has my heart
Makes the worldly fall apart
To my safe place,
Where the lord keeps my soul safe
Love of the Natural World
By Eiesha Pech, student at St. Catherine Academy, Belize City, Belize
A beautiful thing is it not? The world?
It has evolved more and more over the centuries
Becoming more technological as the time goes by
But what about the plants that provide oxygen?
The trees we use to make furniture?
Will they be taken for granted and not highly valued?
For if continue misusing it
Then it is only a matter of time before it does become limited
We must show love towards nature
Towards the birds that flap their wings
Towards the animals and their habitat
Towards the trees that bear fruit and food
Towards the beautiful flowers that not only colorfully adorn our world
But also cheer us day in day out
We must protect God’s masterpiece the way he protects us.
Without these beautiful blessings
There would not be a world to live in.
