Poems on The Beauty of Flowers

Can one conceive of any reason for a flower's beauty excepting our ability to enjoy their exquisite splendor? Of course there are scientific reasons for flowers beautiful colors such as attracting animals to spread nectar and enabling them to reproduce. Just the same, there could have been many other ways to allow for plant species to reproduce. It is my belief that the world is beautiful so that we could have the pleasure of enjoying it. A flower is a testimony that the world is designed for our enjoyment.

10 Nature Poems about Flowers

  1. 1. I Wandered Lonely As A Cloud

    "I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud" is a lyric poem that expresses deep feelings about the beauty of nature. William Wordsworth was a well-known poet of the Romantic era, which began at the beginning of the 1800s. The focus during the Romantic era was on people's feelings and their connectedness to nature. That was a drastic shift from the emphasis on science and reason of the Enlightenment era, which came before. "I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud" is one of Wordsworth's most famous poems. It was inspired by a journal entry his sister wrote recounting when the two of them went for a walk along the bay and saw a large number of daffodils.

    I wandered lonely as a cloud
    That floats on high o'er vales and hills,
    When all at once I saw a crowd,
    A host, of golden daffodils;
    Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
    Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.

    Continuous as the stars that shine
    And twinkle on the milky way,
    They stretched in never-ending line
    Along the margin of a bay:
    Ten thousand saw I at a glance,
    Tossing their heads in sprightly dance.

    The waves beside them danced; but they
    Out-did the sparkling waves in glee:
    A poet could not but be gay,
    In such a jocund company:
    I gazed—and gazed—but little thought
    What wealth the show to me had brought:

    For oft, when on my couch I lie
    In vacant or in pensive mood,
    They flash upon that inward eye
    Which is the bliss of solitude;
    And then my heart with pleasure fills,
    And dances with the daffodils.

    I like it. I really connect with poems that help us appreciate, or at least try to appreciate, nature. I also like it when I'm exposed to new words; jocund. Very good.

  3. 2. Nature's Way

    At 96, I seldom get out anymore, but when I do, I like to people watch. It saddens me how to see the indifference that seems to be prevalent. I always try to smile at people, and usually the first response is surprise, then a bit of a shaky smile. Children are more apt to spontaneously smile back. The conflict between races is creating an unfriendly world. Each one of us needs to do our part to make it better.

    Poem About Smiling Makes The World A Better Place

    Is there anything as tranquil
    As a brightly glowing jonquil
    That stands in sweet serenity,
    A part of nature's tapestry?

    A flower that never questions why,
    The rivers flow and birds will fly,
    Content to fill part of the plan,
    To beautify the world of man.

    If we would only realize
    We, too, can help to glorify,
    To find within each passing day
    A happiness along the way.

    A loving hug or cheerful smile
    Can help to make a life worthwhile.
    If all would lend a helping hand,
    We soon would have a world so grand.

  5. 3. Crimson Rose

    • By Sylvia Winters
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems March 2013

    I wrote this when I was trapped inside by a storm. My friend had given me a rose just before I saw her for the last time, and this poem was more a reflection of how I felt her personality was at that moment: cold and dangerous over a mask of beauty and calm. And who's to say that roses aren't the same?

    A sign of beauty,
    A symbol of grace.
    Its pride runs strong
    At a very fast pace.

    It's wild like a wolf,
    It's gentle like the breeze,
    And it has a burning honour.
    It's not eager to please.

    But carelessness pays.
    It is armed with thorns.
    It'll laugh while you're bleeding
    As your skin gets torn.

    It is loved worldwide,
    But don't be fooled by its pose.
    It holds ancient, dark secrets.
    Beware of the Crimson Rose.

  6. 4. A Flower

    • By Aldora Sparrow
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems October 2008

    This is the first freestlye poem I ever wrote. I was inspired by my friend's idea of giving her boyfriend an origami flower. A flower that never dies...

    Have you ever heard
    of a flower that never needs
    Water, soil, or sunshine?

    A flower that stays in full bloom
    Through summer and winter
    Through good times and bad

    A flower that rarely gets smaller,
    growing endlessly.
    A few lost petals,
    A little droop,
    but, without a doubt,
    it will always regrow
    into something more beautiful.

    I have one of those.
    I call it Love.

    Poem About Human Characteristics Of Flowers

    They have no mouth, but seem to speak
    A thousand words so mild and meek.

    They have no eyes , but seem to see
    And bury thoughts into me.

    They have no ears, but seem to hear
    All my cries, my every tear.

    They have no arms, but seem to pat
    When with worries my heart is fat.

    They have no feet, but seem to walk
    Along with me in my dreams and talk.

    They, I know, are the flowers so nice
    That spread their fragrance a million miles.

    Grow a few and then you'll know
    How your life is fresh and new.

    With a smile so broad, I thank my God,
    Whose work to imagine is really too hard.

  8. 6. Rose In Full Bloom

    • By Ishan Malik
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems February 2006

    Few things are more beautiful than a rose in full bloom.

    Poem About Roses

    Rambling down a cobbled pathway,
    I stumbled upon a wild rose,
    Deep garnet red,
    Velveteen petals each curled to perfection,
    Luminescent and innocently pretty,
    A coy damsel oblivious of her beauty,
    Fading away unadorned and unsung,
    Looking at me, she blushed
    I stood love stung, adoring her,
    Borrowed a steam bearing a bud
    Planted her proudly in my garden,
    Every day, day after day,
    I watched my rose break out of its chrysalis,
    Groomed it with devout care,
    Nurturing it with fertilizer,
    Admiring it with every moment,
    Watching it grown and come into full bloom,
    Tall and elegant till it grew
    And looked down on me!

    • By Rola Barbakh
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems June 2011

    I was a 5th grader when I wrote the poem. I had never had a real friend, and I always used to be teased about little things. When the day came that our teacher asked us to write a poem about how we feel, or about something that bothers us, I was head-in. I came up with this and I was proud because it actually came from me, from my heart. My teacher fell in love with it, and so did I. I sent it to a poem contest in 2005 and it was selected fro publication. Hope you like it, I know I still do.

    The Comfort Of Flowers

    You might think
    A bunch of plants
    Are not special
    In any way.

    But to me
    Flowers are beautiful
    They calm me down
    Like my best friend.

    Their scent is so nice
    It makes me feel so happy
    Some flowers have a strong smell
    I think I will faint!

    When I am sad
    The flowers are my help
    They might just sit there
    But they speak a million words.

    Of comfort and happiness
    A flower feels like a friend
    It listens to me
    And makes me feel loved!

  10. 8. O Flower!

    • By Sarthi
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems June 2009

    "O Flower" is not just a poem based on nature or natural beauty. This poem is a spiritual poem and contains the way to live more naturally and peacefully. Flowing with existences is blissful.

    O flower! Attired in pure natural innocence,
    Thou are ignorant of thy enchanting aroma,
    Unaware of thy charm,
    Dances freely with flirtious breeze,
    Hardly cares about world's joy and sorrow,
    Thou are neither selfish nor altruistic
    Full of self yet so selfless!

    I am fascinated by your tranquil disposition,
    At dawn thou bathe in sun's rays,
    Flirt with colorful butterfly,
    Fall a deep sleep in afternoon warmth.
    Enjoy melodious sound of chirping birds

    Thou lover, up there - the sky,
    Gazes you with intense admiration,
    He kisses you tenderly through his winds,
    Thou spread thy fragrances in his arms,
    He grows enamored of thy presence,
    What a beautiful bond!

    Thy fall comes - autumn arrives,
    Still thou remain full of life as ever before,
    Not worried; not shaken a bit
    Simply falls, without uttering a
    Single word to your lover to save you
    from getting withered.

    Thou unconditional acceptance is captivating,
    O soft hearted beauty, thy passive life is
    Exquisite treasure of green emotions.

    No matter where you see a Red Rose
    Whether it's in a store or wild and free
    You always see it withering
    There's never a chance to grieve until it's gone
    But if you look onto a Yellow Rose
    The color is always perfect
    The petals are never drooping
    And they're always of abundance....

  12. 10. Easy To Grow

    • By Constance Kettle
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems June 2011

    Hello, I'm a gardener from way back and have learned that the best way is to just relax and have fun with your
    gardens. Enjoy.

    We carefully tuck them
    All into their beds,
    Then pinch, poke, and coax them,
    Remove their spent heads.
    We cross them, then toss them
    Or force them to grow.
    We lovingly boss them
    And drench with cold flow!

    We mass them and class them
    And make them eat dirt,
    And seldom do ask them,
    "Does anything hurt?"
    With relish, we shear them
    In sun's morning shaft;
    No questions nor qualms,
    Make them partners in graft!

    We scrutinize field guides
    To learn what it takes,
    Dig up and divide then,
    Or tie to the stakes?
    We worry and wonder
    Just what should we do
    When red rose goes under,
    Replace it with new?

    We smell them and hold them
    When bloom is complete
    Then pridefully show them
    Put rocks on their feet.
    We train and contain them,
    And cleverly name them
    (as most clever names go),
    "guaranteed hardy"
    And "real easy to grow"!
