Famous Nature Poems

Poems on Nature

The power, ingenuity, and sheer beauty found in nature has always fascinated mankind. When we look at powerful ocean waves rolling in, we cannot help but feel small and powerless in comparison. Mighty trees in a vast forest inspire feelings of insignificance and awe. Animal mothers taking care of their young make us question the cruelty with which we sometimes treat one another. The truth is, nature can teach us many valuable lessons. It can also lead us to wonder, did this beautiful earth with all of its natural treasures come about by chance or was it created?

    Now the garden's at its gayest with the salvia blazing red
    And the good old-fashioned asters laughing at us from their bed;

    My mind lets go a thousand things
    Like dates of wars and deaths of kings,
    And yet recalls the very hour--
    'T was noon by yonder village tower,

    Crisply the bright snow whispered,
    Crunching beneath our feet;
    Behind us as we walked along the parkway,
    Our shadows danced,

    Winter is the king of showmen,
    Turning tree stumps into snow men
