I am writing a childrens poetry book for my senior project at my technical school. I am writing a series of poems in the first person - for example, I am the sun, I am the earth, I am the clouds, I am the bugs... I will be posting poems as I write them, I would appreciate any comments or critiscm! I want these poems to work. Help me please! Thanks!

I Am The Earth
I am the great green gentle earth
Youíve lived upon me since your birth
I pay mind to the shining sun
The flowers open when he comes
And lay back down when he is done
4.5 billion years Iíve spun upon a tilted axis
Around eight planets I have run, oh a long time I have lasted
I care for the seas, the trees, the bugs, and for people too
The sun tells me to take it easy- lately Iíve been looking blue
I say I will always love my children and forever be your home
Even when you hurt me and destroy fragile ozone
As long as I am the great green gentle earth.
