Take me to your bosom, oh bountiful Mother Earth.
Let me lick upon your nipples, upon hillsides you have birthed.
Cradle me in your mountain tops, hold me in luscious ravines.
Enthrall me with your peaks and troughs, allow me to sleep in meadows and dream.
Embrace me in your valley's cleavage, wrap me in mists of silk.
Permit me to drink of your waters, and suckle of your milk.
Pull me close into your body, envelope me with your love.
Grant me to listen to your heart beat, just a molecule from above.
Cuddle me in forests, cover me in grassy plains.
Drape me in savannah, keep me from going insane.
Warm me in your deserts, caress me on your beach.
Touch me ever so softly, with your flora and your beast.
Clothe me in your estuaries, serenade me with morning song.
Nurture me with field and hedgerow, feed me landscapes to which I long.
Sit me upon your plateau, nuzzle me with marsh and steppe.
Bounce me upon your tundra, speak to me words I'll never forget.
Kiss me with your sunsets, painted vivid upon the sky.
Tuck me in at night, all the stars bedecked within your eye.
Whisper to me with your wind, sprinkle me with your sand.
Be forever next to me, walking with me hand in hand.
