Nature Poems for Kids

Poetry for Children about Nature

Children don’t need fancy toys or technology. They naturally yearn to explore the outdoors. Hours could be spent playing in mud, watching clouds float by, or observing animals. They see the simple beauty in nature. They love all things, from slimy animals to the beauty of seasons and the mountains. Children are curious to explore the natural elements around them.

  3. The Robin And The Crow

    A Tale Of Friendship And Sharing

    A robin and a crow were perched upon a fence,
    an unlikely combination, but they seemed to be good friends.
    Standing in the mid-day sun each on a separate picket,
    basking in its rays while staring at a cricket.

    Burning like an oven but as small as a fly,
    Mercury steals Apollo's light,
    But only when it is at night,

    Majestic Peaks

    Emerges above the land, into their peak.

    Eating Cookies And Drinking Hot Chocolate

    If winter was a person she would be a girl with frosty hair.
    Winter would wear snow pants snow boots, gloves, a hat and scarf.
    Winter would smell like hot chocolate and peanut butter and Hershey Kiss cookies baking in the oven.
    Winter would spend the day eating cookies and drinking hot cocoa by a lake.
