Ode to Greta Thunberg

Updated: Dec 13, 2019

Greta's wonderful recognition as Time Magazine "Person of the Year", due to her extraordinary efforts to fight for climate change, inspired me to share the piece and poem I made in her honor.


“To Greta: Song of the Heart”

This is my song; I hope you can hear it

It’s a cry from deep in my heart

You took away my dream

I dreamed of flowers in the breeze

You stole away my dream

I dreamed of song birds in the trees

This is my song; I hope you can hear it

It’s a cry from deep in my heart

You snatched away my dreams

My dreams have gone to dust

You robbed me of my schemes

And stole away my trust

This is my song; I hope you can hear it

It’s a cry from deep in my heart

How dare you twist the truth

Birds now fade in darkened cloud

How dare you steal my youth

My earth is draped in deathly shroud

You stole away my dream

But you could not steal my voice

This is my song

I hope you can hear it
