Acrostic Sonnet for Climate Change Wreath

Man's Great Folly - Master Sonnet

by kiwisteveh

Majestic planet, bathed by oceans blue,
Adrift in space, enriched with beauty rare,
No other world we know is blessed like you
So long as we, your children, keep you fair.

Great wonders have we built, all at your cost;
Rapacious plunder drains the sweetest well.
Each generation takes, now all seems lost.
As climate alters, land and sea rebel.

The air grows thick, polluted by our waste.
For every tree we plant, a forest falls.
Our oceans choke on filth; man stands disgraced.
Like fools we bicker while your future palls.

Let's make a change right now, repair the rift;
You gave us life - we must return your gift.



This is the Master Sonnet for the Climate Change wreath - it has been previously posted and is revived here to celebrate the completion and posting of the entire wreath today.

This sonnet is not only an acrostic, but also each of its lines provide a starting point for the 14 sonnets that make up the wreath.

This sonnet is part of a co-authored wreath of sonnets to bring attention to climate change and the human pollution contributing to it.
Each sonnet starts with the last line of the previous sonnet and the first lines create a 15th sonnet - called Master Sonnet.
Please check out the rest of the sonnets marked by the same image.
Ideally, they are read in order.
