Virtual 2021 Competition Cries

OYEZ ! OYEZ ! OYEZ !
Sunshine almost always makes me happy, but sometimes I’m depressed;
And I am not the only one, it happens to the best.
The natural world is wonderful – its beauty unsurpassed,
It lifts you up when you are down and better thoughts it casts.
The time has come to re-connect with flora and with fauna,
To sense our place in nature and restore its special aura.
To walk in fields and forests, by lakes and running streams,
Improves our mental health and revives our hopes and dreams.
Covid 19’s been a trial for us all,
Its damage to minds the cruellest of all.
So let’s treasure nature and all of its glories,
For time spent therein will improve all our stories.
God Save The Queen

Oyez, Oyez, Oyez!!
Nature is geology and chemicals and weather Left to themselves, they all work well together.
Nature is natural, it evolves all on its own And will best use Earth’s bounty if we leave it alone.
Environment, however, is how nature tries to thrive We should listen to nature if we wish to survive.
By changing the Environment, there’s the worrying chance Of obstructing the pathway of Nature’s natural advance.
It’s useless creating energy, for all that it’s worth, If it means depleting the insides of dear, Mother Earth
Fossil fuels create gases that blot out the sun And before we can shout “OYEZ”, global warming has begun.
So, my cry is for Nature – it’s so important we take heed To let Nature alone change the Environment – I pray we will succeed.
GOD SAVE THE QUEEN!!
