Care for Our Common Home

By Kathleen P. Mallon

Norbertine Associate, St. Norbert Abbey

God gives us many gifts
for our common home
which stretches all the way
to the stars and beyond

the colors and beauty and bounty
of trees and flowers and plants
to nourish both body and soul

the variety of creatures great and small
some to amaze and amuse us
some to aid and fill our needs

the waters to sustain us

the skies to shower us
with warmth and inspiration

He links us with one another
united yet unique

so together we can love and treasure
all His gifts
with care. concern, and creativity
for their growing fragility

in faith and gratitude
now and always
