Nature Is This and This Is I

I, I, I, I am nature.
Nature is this and this is I,
I, I, I, I am nature,
Nature needs love and care, so do I.
I am this and this is nature,
I need food and water.
Nature is this and this is I,
Nature grows over time, so do I.
I am this and this is nature.
I like to be in the sun.
Nature is this and this is I.
I, I, I, I am nature.

So I hope this (my poem) will help people plant trees and help the Earth a little bit more. I am also doing a project called Save the planet…”
