Imagine if days never had sunshine
Or if the night had no stars or moon,
If books had no pages, pens had no paper,
Or if a song didn’t have any tune!
Imagine if rainbows had no colors
Or if a forest didn’t have trees,
If birds couldn't fly, oceans were dry,
Or if with crackers you couldn’t have cheese!
Imagine if the sky was not blue
Or if the grass never turned green,
If fruit wasn’t sweet, animals had no feet,
Or if no variety ever was seen!
If we imagine a world without beauty
It helps us to be more aware,
To give thanks and praise to God all our days,
Treat the earth with much greater care.
