On Earth Day 2021, our 12-year-old guest blogger, Diptanu Chakraborty, has beautifully and lucidly expressed, how we can protect our nature. It doesn’t require much on our parts – just some small acts can protect our environment, and give our kids a better place to live.
Though Earth’s age is more than 4.5 billion years, we started celebrating its birthday just a few decades back. It was a conscientious effort to make the inhabitants of this Earth, that’s us, aware about her natural bounty and beauty. The Earth Day pledges to keep the planet beautiful, as it was, when it was formed.
Before we share the poem, a brief history
US Senator from Wisconsin, Gaylord Nelson with 20 million American families had first celebrated Earth Day on April 22, 1970. They took to the streets to raise environmental awareness among people. In 2016, the event got acceptance by many other countries and it’s a world event celebrated on April 22, every year.

Happy Earth Day
Earth Day Earth Day
It is Earth’s Birthday!
When we wash hands turn off tappy,
Save water makes the earth HAPPY.
Turn off the light nicely,
Save Electricity gives Earth a Smiley.
We should not pollute nor litter,
We never can make our Earth bitter.
We should have a nice solution,
We should not give the Earth Pollution.
Planting trees is good for the air,
Let this not be very rare.
Amazon is burning can you see
Oxygen is less but we cant feel.
Licypriya and Greta can you hear,
Our poor Earth is in fear.
Don’t use plastic all the time
On clothes and jute spend your dime.
Birds dance in water and drink it too
In summer make it a job to do.
Never ever waste food,
This act is not good.
To save Earth these are the ways,
Everyone say “Happy Earth Day!! ”
