How do you love this world of ours?

I have been praying over Carol Bialock's poems and will share another with you today:
I Embrace the World this Morning

I embrace the world this morning,
Hold her in my arms a long moment
And decide never to let her go, 
Never to return to safety,
Never to say, "It's none of my business."
It is.

Maybe there should be a ritual
When we come of age,
When we're old enough to respond
"I do",
To the most crucial question:
"Do you love this world?"

Perhaps that will be the final question:
"Have you truly, deeply, faithfully
Loved this world?
