No one tipped their hat to the rising sun
or applauded the purple clouds.
No one answered when the raindrops tapped on shoulders
or soothed the thunder's cries.
No one stood when the wind asked to dance
and the breezes swayed in solitude.
No one thanked the moon for taking the graveyard shift
or winked back at the stars.
No one sang along with the early birds or
raced with the tumbling leaves on the wind.
No waved waved back at the ocean or
said hello to the line of ants on their morning commute.
No one congratulated the sunset on its brilliant use of color
or smiled at the autumn fashion line.
No one asked the owl for an encore
or praised its soothing lullaby
But we all want to curtsy
and take credit for
the beauty Earth provides.
And, being a mother,
she selflessly complies.
