Rest for the Land by Raymond A. Foss

Within the commandments
the call from God to rest
an understanding more than man
rest for the land as well
our animals, our servants
the land all needing to rest
our duty as stewards
to follow the master’s will

To care for the land and the people
the animals and plants as well
all of creation is waiting
for us to follow his call
to treat the planet with care
in keeping with our charge
masters over creation
not as creators, gardeners
only for our time on the earth
