Earth Hour is a wonderful concept. An idea started in Sydney in 2007, it has now spread to be a world wide phenomenon. An annual chance to spend an hour with the electricity and lights off, to remind ourselves to conserve energy for the rest of the year.
My son and I have been doing Earth Hour since it started. He really enjoys it each year- the candles being part of the novelty and part of the fun for a child.

This year, he wrote some poems. He doesn't usually write poems. But I think they're pretty good.
The wax burnt
by the dance of the flickering flame
but it was as if it weren't
anything more than a shame
The flames danced
without care for the world
the flames pranced
looking for a world where candles are held.
