"Don't blow it--good planets are hard to find."
--Quoted from Time Magazine

Although the following song is undoubtedly a pastoral one, I like the lovely imagery. I think I read somewhere that the Earth is perfectly aligned in every way to make room for life--if it were tilted one degree more to the right or left, life would not be possible. How lovely an idea is that? But it's sad that we as a species don't take time to recognize this a bit more. Nor are we the only life taking advantage of this axis tilt.

 
Good Planets Are Hard to Find
by Steve Forbert
"Good planets are hard to find,
Temp'rate zones and tropic climes,
True currents in thriving seas,
Winds blowin' through breathing trees,
Strong ozone and safe sunshine,
Good planets are hard to find.

Good planets are in demand,
Clean beaches and sparkling sand,
Land masses with room to spare,
Jet streams and perfect air,
High forests and low wetlands,
Good planets are in demand.

And the mind don't know
If the heart can't see;
Let the blind man go
To his destiny...

Good planets are rare indeed,
Rain fallin' on crops and seed,
Big rivers and good topsoil,
Fuel sources from cane to oil,
Green gardens of all we need,
Good planets are rare indeed.

And the mind don't know
If the heart can't see;
Let the blind man go
To his destiny...

Good planets are scarce and few,
Earthworms and caribou,
Strong food chains and tasty meals,
Textiles and plants that heal,
Iron mountains and skies of blue,
Good planets are scarce and few."
