Wangari Maathai~ 1940-2011

~Wangari Maathai~

You sang Nature is our wealth

while sowing the seeds of Peace,

now your essence is a dance

in the Fragrant Being~

Crowned with the golden leaves

from each tree you planted,

you are where beauties belong

and we, uplifted,

water the soil

you caressed with

all the love in your voice.
