Poem 28

Alarm

By Michelle Garren Flye

 

Wake up!

Because the birds are singing.

Wake up!

And see the flowers bloom.

Wake up!

Because it’s fading away…

 

Endangered becomes extinct,

Ices melt and seas rise,

The air turns poison,

And there is nothing left to prize—

 

Wake up!

Do something. Listen and learn.

Wake up!

The alarm has sounded…

 

Wake up!

You can’t afford to sleep.
