By sea,by land,by air

they come bearing gifts

to Earth’s atmosphere.

Nitrogen and Oxygen

were most generous

with their own gases.

And Argon and Carbon dioxide

also took pride

in giving themselves.

And water brought vapour

and crystals of ice,

and the ocean thought

a bouquet of salt

would be nice,

And the flowers

not to be outdone,

presented their pollen

in wind wrapped particles.

And from every direction,

earth’s atmosphere

received a shower of gifts-

including a sad windfall

of ashes and soot,

and gases that pollute.
