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.

    The grass is green across the hill,
    But yellow blooms the daffodil.
    It's sunshine on a little stalk,
    A friendly flower, I bet they talk...

  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.

    Snow is falling to the ground
    Piling up in enormous mounds

    Children run outside to play

    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.

    Majestic Peaks

    Emerges above the land, into their peak.
    It is the sky they constantly seek.

    From the far distance, we won't notice their height.

    The cold winter has passed, and now comes spring.
    The newly hatched baby birds will cause the mother birds to sing.
