EARTH ANTHEM

Many countries play or sing the Earth “Anthem” penned by poet Abhay K to celebrate the day.

Our cosmic oasis, cosmic blue pearl
the most beautiful planet in the universe
all the continents and the oceans
united we stand as flora and fauna
united we stand as species of one earth
different cultures, beliefs and ways
we are humans, the earth is our home
all the people and the nations of the world
all for one and one for all
united we unfurl the blue flag.
