Not only are 2 10's students poets, but they are also very much aware of all environmental issues. They've put a lot of energy and imagination in writing the following poems.
~The boy and the polar bear~
It’s the story of a little boy,
Who eats candies,
It’s the story of a polar bear,
Who picks the papers of these candies,
The bear meets the boy on the quay,
And says “Why throw your papers into the water? Do you know the impact?”
The boy answers “Sorry, I didn't know! It’s a grave act?”
The bear surprised, thinks:
“If no one tells the people,
Nobody will think to protect the planet!”
But, why don't we do the first step?
See and change
When I see the world,
I ask myself if my children will be happy,
If they will need to worry for their health at every step outside.
I want us to save the Earth for them!
When I see the ocean,
I take fright for submarine life.
Will this world be as fabulous in thirty years?
I want us to save the Earth for this!
When I see humans,
I ask myself on their capacity to react,
And I only see pretexts and lies but no action.
So first, I want us to change this for save Earth!
There wasn’t snow this winter,
Today hurricanes, earthquakes, flood sreplace it.
The atmosphere gets warm, silently, slowly.
In the far north, ice is rare,
Penguins and polar bears play hide and seek with the ice cap.
Lower, the sky rumbles.
Drops fall like a threat on earth.
Earth is threatened by our carbon footprint, by men.
Our planet is in pain
But today, who will hear its tears?
The environmental warning
Humans are destroying the planet !
They exhaust natural resources without fear.
They pollute the atmosphere.
They deforest without care.
The pollution products a lot of greenhouse gas,
And global warming is caused by the greenhouse effect.
It brings the extinction of some species.
Humans… Is that your project ?
You have to react !
You could consider ecology,
And use renewable energies !
If you did that your future would be happy !
The human beings' story
For decades, human beings polluted the planet.
They built factories, and nuclear plants,
The animals started to become extinct;
The ice-cap was melting and ecological issues were abundant.
But, one day, some of them woke-up,
And realized that they had to do something.
They had to reduce their carbon footprint, and their green house effect.
They installed solar panels, wind turbines and other things.
They started to treat their planet with respect.
That story was easy to relate
Is it really hard to make it ours?
