Beautiful Nature Poems

When we take the time to examine the beauty of the world around us, we are able to see parallels within our own lives. One who in tune with nature is in tune with the practice of living. Nature moves in a spiral as do our personal lives. It is important to spend time in nature because in this way we can become aware of its wisdom. If we ignore the beauty of nature and spend all our time in an urban jungle, our stress levels go up and we begin to feel as if we are made out of the concrete that we see all around us.

51 Poems about enjoying the calm, serenity and beauty of nature.

  1. 1. Tapestry

    • By Lesley Elaine Greenwood
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems March 2013

    Hi I'm Lesley, a retired teacher enjoying my three grandchildren. I started writing poetry seriously when my eleven year old daughter, Heather died suddenly in the Spring of 1995. I was able to express my feelings through verse and this helped me come to terms with the massive hole that she left in my world. So a lot of my poems mix sadness and happiness. Nature and friendship are also important to me, the beauty around us and within us.

    If I could take a brush and paint the mountains and the moors,
    I would splash the hillsides yellow and cover them in gorse.
    I'd take the finest needle and the darkest thread of green
    And sew a line of bracken along the landscape. In-between

  3. 2. Renewed By The Morning Light

    This poem is about nature and also about being grateful for each new day and a chance to start anew.

    I sit upon my front porch stoop
    Beneath the morning sun.
    Grateful for the moment spent
    Away from everyone.

  5. 3. Our Blessings

    “Our Blessings" by Ella Wheeler Wilcox encourages readers to reflect on the small, everyday blessings in life and to be grateful for them. She reminds us that blessings come in all forms, whether they be big or small, and that they are all around us if we only take the time to notice them. The poem employs poetic techniques such as imagery, where the speaker uses descriptive language to create sensory experiences for the reader, helping them to see and feel the blessings in their life. Alliteration is also used to draw attention to the beauty of the sky and repetition is used to stress the idea that blessings are all around us.

    Sitting to-day in the sunshine
    That touched me with fingers of love,
    I thought of the manifold blessings
    God scatters on earth, from above;

  6. 4. The Forest's Blessed Abode

    Naturalist John Muir and my love of trees inspired this poem. Muir's conservation efforts saved many forests and natural areas for all of us. While in Alaska, I saw the loveliest forests and scenery I've ever seen. Muir's quote on his Alaska trip describes what I saw: "Tracing shining ways through fiord and sound, past forests and waterfalls, islands and mountains and far azure headlands, it seems as if surely we must at length reach the very paradise of the poets, the abode of the blessed."

    Come, walk with me into the forest's blessed abode,
    To see the wondrous beauty the Earth has bestowed;
    We'll bask in the surreal splendor that surrounds us,
    And listen to nature composing the forest's grand opus,

  7. 5. My Wooded World

    • By Sheila Visingardi
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems February 2006

    There's time for space and contemplation in the wooded world.
    The poem makes use of personification to make the woods seem alive. The branches, wind and animals are given human characteristics like walking, singing, talking.
    In loving memory of John H. Burns Sr. -my father

    As a child, I would sit and ponder
    at the wooded areas, for their beauty relaxed me.
    The sway of the branches and whistling of the winds,
    as if they were calling my name.

  8. 6. The Beauty Of A Tree

    I have always loved the beauty and strength of trees. One day I was envisioning myself as a tree with my roots growing deep in my faith.

    Can there be anything more lovely
    Than the beauty of a tree?
    Her leaves shimmering in the wind,
    Dancing so gracefully.

  9. 7. The Brook

    The Industrial Revolution took place in Great Britain during the late 1700s and early 1800s. As cities grew, living conditions deteriorated for the poor and working class. Factories and mass production were beneficial for some but not everyone. This poem stands in contrast of new manufacturing processes of that time period by focusing on nature. The narrator in this poem, the brook, is personified. The brook shows persistence by continuing to flow, no matter what obstacles get in its way. The repeated lines, “For men may come and men may go, but I go on for ever,” showcase that. Famous poet Alfred Tennyson (1809-1892) was named Poet Laureate in Great Britain and Ireland.

    I come from haunts of coot and hern,
    I make a sudden sally
    And sparkle out among the fern,
    To bicker down a valley.

  11. 9. Inner Peace

    • By Joshua Fraser
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems August 2018

    I was sitting at the beach, fishing. After having a few mental breakdowns during the week before, it was the first time I felt some peace.

    The wind whistles past my ears.
    Closing my eyes, I lose all my fears.
    The waves crash into the rocks.
    Out here there is no time on my clock.

    •  Published by Family Friend Poems March 2013

    Through this poetry I want to thank mother earth for sending me this beautiful nature in this wonder-world. I am amazed to see and to feel the beauty of the wonderland called the earth decorated with trees, flowers, animals and many more creatures of wonder.

    As I walk across the earth,
    thousands of things I get to see.
    Birds fly high, soaring higher,
    and on the flowers I hear the buzz of bees.

    Cold and calculating
    Frost on the windows

  15. 13. Mighty Tempest

    Storms have fascinated me since I was a child. Although I now understand them a bit better, I can understand how people through history have associated storms to particular mythological gods, and mysterious occurrences of nature with folklore and other stories. I just wanted to set the feeling of a summer storm and give a little credit back to the mythological gods who were so infamous in creating these storms during ancient times. I hope my poem is enjoyed by storm lovers everywhere!

    Sultry sun on fields and bay,
    quiet calm engulfs the day.

    Faint troubled rumblings in the sky

  16. 14. Wind On The Hill

    The wind is a unique phenomenon. While we are unable to see it, we can see the result of it blowing. “Wind on the Hill” shows a child grappling with this understanding. A.A. Milne wrote books and poems for children. His most famous creation was Winnie the Pooh.

    No one can tell me,
    Nobody knows,
    Where the wind comes from,
    Where the wind goes.

  17. 15. A Day Of Sunshine

    Sunny days have a way of making us feel fantastic. We want to take full advantage of what the day has to offer. Famous poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1807-1882) captures the beauty and desire to enjoy nature on a sunny day. Sunny days can make it hard to focus on work because one would rather be outside enjoying the majesty of the natural world. Henry Wadsworth Longfellow was a prolific writer of prose and poetry. After graduating from college, he studied languages in Europe before becoming a college professor at Bowdoin, his alma mater, and later at Harvard.

    O gift of God! O perfect day:
    Whereon shall no man work, but play;
    Whereon it is enough for me,
    Not to be doing, but to be!

  18. 16. Vision

    Sometimes it’s hard to see past what is right in front of us in order to see the beauty around us. It can be easy to allow circumstances to cloud our view. In this poem, mist and clouds fill the valley, preventing the people living there from seeing the beauty of the surrounding mountains.

    I came to the mountains for beauty
    And I find here the toiling folk,
    On sparse little farms in the valleys,
    Wearing their days like a yoke.

  19. 17. On The Wings Of A Song

    I write music, and one of the happiest times of my life was riding in the car and hearing one of my songs for the first time being beautifully played by a top orchestra. I feel if you can give music to people, you have given an everlasting gift. Nature has its own music, available to all who will listen.

    Once in a while, if you are feeling blue,
    When troubles seem to keep coming along,
    If you will take the time to listen to music
    It can lift your spirits on the wings of a song.

  21. 19. Nightfall

    • By Marylin M. Naane
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems September 2016

    As I stood by the window one night staring into darkness and listening to night insects, my mind raced through my noisy day, and I thought how nice would it be if that kind of peace and silent beauty existed during the day, too. That was the inspiration for this poem.

    Yet another day passes.
    Over hills, twilight presses.
    Moon already hung up high,
    Welcoming nightfall.

    I was inspired to write a poem about nature sounds after playing my guitar outside trying to harmonize with all the sounds nature has to offer.

    When the day becomes the night and the moon begins to glow,
    The ocean waves will sing a song nobody knows.

    As the mountains peak up high and the trees begin to shake,
