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?

    O gift of God! O perfect day:
    Whereon shall no man work, but play;

  6. February Twilight

    I stood beside a hill
    Smooth with new-laid snow,
    A single star looked out

    Turning tree stumps into snow men
    And houses into birthday cakes
    And spreading sugar over lakes.

  11. Desert Places

    Snow falling and night falling fast, oh, fast
    In a field I looked into going past,

    And sparkle out among the fern,
    To bicker down a valley.

    That floats on high o'er vales and hills,
    When all at once I saw a crowd,
    A host, of golden daffodils;
