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. Winter Morning Poem

    Winter is the king of showmen,
    Turning tree stumps into snow men
    And houses into birthday cakes
    And spreading sugar over lakes.

    The grass is green across the hill,
    But yellow blooms the daffodil.

    A friendly flower, I bet they talk...

  7. 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.

    Snow is falling to the ground,
    Piling up in enormous mounds.
    School is canceled for the day.
    Children run outside to play.

  11. The Moon

    The moon has a face like the clock in the hall;
    She shines on thieves on the garden wall,
    On streets and fields and harbour quays,
    And birdies asleep in the forks of the trees.

  12. The Rainbow

    Boats sail on the rivers,
    And ships sail on the seas;
    But clouds that sail across the sky
    Are prettier than these.

  13. Winter

    • By Olivia Kooker
    • Published: August 2011
    Eating Cookies And Drinking Hot Chocolate

    If winter were 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.
