A Spring Pastoral for Earth Day

Blogging Challenge: letter S

Poetry Challenge: write a pastoral or a poem that engages with nature.


By Jessica Scott


I am the Earth sweetly singing,

At the dawning of a brand new day.

With leaves on trees newly budding,

And showers that bring the flowers of May.


I am the fertile meadows

With grasses growing fresh and tall,

Where bees and birds greet the morning

And every creature, great and small.


I am the voice you hear on the wind,

The lullaby the stars whisper to you at night.

I am the land softly calling-

Hear me, and in me delight.


Happy Earth Day!

Jesi has two poems published in Memories of Mist, a literary anthology, and one published story in a newsletter. She is currently working on releasing her first poetry collection as well as writing her first novel. When not writing, Jesi can be found getting lost in bookstores, singing and dancing around the house, experiencing culture with friends, and generally having fun with her four sons when they aren’t driving her weeping into her closet, which she calls her Padded Cell. She loves to rescue stray bookmarks, as well as books, and has opened her heart to any and all stories needing a home. Archery is her current favorite thing ever but you might want to stand back a little as she still has a tendency to drop the bow occasionally.
