By Alexie (Year 3, Corndale Public School)I felt people touching my pointy spikes.
I tasted juicy termites in my mouth.
I smelt the freezing air getting colder.
I saw the sun rising from the horizon while I was eating termites.
The Lonely Trees
By Orlando (Year 7, Ashfield Boys High School)Green surrounds me with a tight grasp
I wonder how people can support
Clenching me like a hug
Trees these days
By Clarissa (Year 5, St Mary's Primary School)The whole world may fade,
unless we act today.
No coral reefs,
A Climb that is Worthy
By Sophia (Year 5, Arden Anglican School)Walking up a hill as the icy breeze screams in your face
watching as all the children chatter
leaving imprints of footprints with each quick step.
Looking forward ahead, watching the sand morph into grass and rock,
The big bad blaze
By Carrington (Year 6, Sacre Coeur)Starting as a spark
The earth went dark
I started to choke
Because there was so much smoke
Together or Alone
By Liam (Year 5, New Lambton South Public School)A light can shine alone but it can’t start to glisten if one shouldn't listen
A tree can thrive, with the need to survive but it needs the sun, in order to strive
No one can start without someone to flick your switch
All you can do is fathom a small twitch
By April (Year 5, Sunshine Coast Grammar School)As the trees blew
Only I knew.
The beauty that lies within
By Francesca (Year 3, Fitzroy North Primary School)Soft and buttery yellow, shuddering in the sudden wind,
light as a feather, it waltzes delicately.
The centre, brown like the soil it grows in.
Stem sturdy like a tree trunk.
By Brendan (Year 1, Santa Sabina College)I see a black and white thing
in a tree looking at me.
I walk away.
Pebble of Pearl
By Pernille (Year 2, Brunswick South Primary School)On a rocky outcrop there are 12 rocks, all of them a different shade of gold,
But one stood out like a pearl in a sea of gold
This stone had feelings, unlike the others
How it felt was unknown to all
By Harry (Year 8, Knox Grammar School)As I look on the lands of our birthplace,
I see the scars Nature has bravely borne.
And still, I see the perils, the disgrace
That Men have left though not commonly aired.
Heart of the Hawksbury
By Asha (Year 7, The Centre of Excellence in Agricultural Education)Days spent relaxing on the river side
Years of history laced throughout the river
Animals drinking from the river
Recreational activities on the river
Out On The Great Barrier Reef
By Zoe (Year 6, Kelso Public School)Out on the Great Barrier Reef,
Where the turtles and the sharks lay.
The coral is suffering at the hands of a monster
Where the fish and the sea horses play.
When will it stop?
By Addison (Year 6, Port Kembla Public School)My world slowly began to flood,
day by day the rain dropped with a thud.
More water than I have ever seen,
not even a break of sun in between.
By Luca (Year 6, Oxford Falls Grammar School)Deep in the forest
A numbat refreshingly rests
Hidden in logs
And under the rich soil.
By Olivia (F/K, Mount Eliza Primary School)The tree is big and kind.
The green leaves are soft and wet.
The tree makes me feel happy.
By Vishwam (Year 3, Bayanami Public School)When the sun sets the
melodious jungle starts
Singing in the eligant
By Jessica (Year 9, St Patrick's College)The Mother of plants
The Mother of life
By Nathaniel (Year 6, St Peter's Anglican College - Broulee)I feel the breeze go of over my head,
Next thing you know I could be dead,
The weather is changing,
First it's burning,
The Grey World
By Bill (Year 5, Knox Grammar School)Everything changed when the Last Tree was destroyed.
There were once trees for children to enjoy.
Humans were provided with valuable resources whenever they needed.
The earth was a transpestry of flora flourishing magnificent leaves painted the Earth.
