One and All.

One for wine, one for milk
one for gin, one for juice;
all in the same cupboard –
different dishes, diverse in use.

One for walking, one that holds
one that stands, one that builds;
all parts of one body
with equal roles to fulfill.

One to smell, one that hears
one that feels, one for taste;
Each a sense in the same mind –
all ways to see,
no angle to waste.

One that feeds, one for heat
one to breathe, one hydrates;
all resources on the same earth,
different fuels that love creates.

One for you, one for me
a set of rules that sets us free –
protects the earth, respects the sea –
sustaining life
for eternity.
