Animals and Plants

heart and lung
tooth and claw
this is of the animal score

breath of air
these to make
this is of the vegetable stake

calm and peace
peace and calm
a hope of all, with heart and lung

Consider those without these things
and see what peace and love they bring
no destruction but their own
then live again for others unknown
so noble are the trees and plants
so noble are the flowers and shrubs
so peaceful and calm forever and a day
consider those without these things
those without, have what we want.
