Summer’s first hints of Autumn (poem)


Just a leaf or two

Summer’s first hints of Autumn

Summer’s first hints of autumn are appearing,
There’s just a leaf or two dropping here and there.
Showing to us that autumn time is nearing,
It feels just a little cooler in the air.

The daytime is now slowly decreasing,
The sun is spending less time in the sky.
The night time is now slowly increasing,
With the evening stars once more seen up high.

Squirrels start to seek nuts for hibernating,
Racing around the branches of the trees.
Birds have started to think about migrating,
To warmer places over the land and seas.

Some summer flowers are fading from sight,
As their bright colours slowly disappear.
But others will wait for autumn’s first bite,
And keep going until the frost gets here.

Summers first hint of autumn is in the air,
As nature starts releasing summers warm glow.
A time for the world of nature to prepare,
For whatever the winter may put on show.

Seek for the dream beyond the sunrise (poem)


New dreams are there

Lake Smeraldo lake 2

Seek for the dream beyond the sunrise

Seek for the dream beyond the sunrise,
Climb up to where the eagle flies.
Release your hopes high into the air,
Watch them circle serenely up there.

Let tomorrow’s dreams call out to you,
Listen as the sunrise comes into view.
Watch as your hopes fly into your dreams,
Gliding effortlessly in dawns sunbeams.

Feel the breeze of change sweep gently past,
Bringing you some new dreams that will last.
Let dawns sun warm the spirit inside,
And upon those new dreams, take a ride.

The Royal Oak tree (poem)


A wonder of nature

W M Oak tree 1

The Royal Oak tree


The Royal Oak tree, over a hundred years old,
Planted by the queen, or so the story is told.
Not far from the crossroads, there it stands so proud,
There are times when its top gets lost in a cloud.

You can see it on the horizon from far away,
And under its branches, the children love to play,
Chasing each other around or having a singsong.
Throughout every season it stands there tall and strong.

In spring the old oak slowly begins to awake,
Showing tips of green from the leaves it’s starting to make.
In summer it cast its shadow far over the ground,
Where shelter from the hot summer sun can be found.

In autumn comes the soft shades of red, gold, and brown.
A royal elegance, a beautiful crown.
When winter arrives, its leaves fade and disappear,
As the old oak goes back to sleep for another year.

Stretching of the light (poem)


The days are lighter for longer 

Stretching of the light

There is just a fraction of warmth in the midday sun,
A hint of spring as the days begin to stretch their light.
On this sunrise, you can see winters work is not yet done,
From the deep frost that it laid down during the night.

This landscape of frost is glistening in the early dawn,
Winter is firmly in command at the start of this new day.
But from the white bells of the snowdrops, growing in the lawn,
Spring is letting us know that it is not too far away.

Upon the branches, tips of the first buds are appearing,
Hinting to winter that it’s time to pack its bags and go.
The stretching of the light tells us that spring is nearing,
And that soon the blossoms of the spring will be on show.

A November Rose (poem)


Nature’s last offering of summer beauty.  

A November Rose

A November rose, autumn’s sweet delight,
Blossoming as summer is fading from sight.
Its tender petals, defying the coldness,
Summer’s beauty living within its boldness.
In the autumn breeze, the rose gently sways,
A touch of colour for the darkening days.
Nature’s lost summer still there for us to see,
Beauty’s last glance before winter is set free.
It’s autumn splendour now fading for the year,
Until the spring, when the new buds will appear.

Nature’s summer wonders (poem)


The beauty of nature in summer.

Nature’s summer wonders

The sun rolls lazily across our summer sky,
The gardens are putting on their summer show.
Above them, the swifts and swallows are flying high,
While the butterflies dance upon the flowers below.

Roses burst open in colours of yellows, pinks and reds,
Their blooms sway gently from a passing summer breeze.
The Buddleias and the flowers in their flowerbeds,
Are surrendering their pollen to the passing bees.

In the woodlands, the animals are raising their young,
The trees providing the shelter and homes that they need.
Its canopy echoes to the songs the birds have sung,
Its spring blossom slowly changing to autumn seed.

A golden ball of summer sunshine (poem)


Nature welcomes a new day

A golden ball of summer sunshine

A golden ball of summer sunshine,
Balancing upon the land at dawn.
A promise that the weather is fine,
Just as a new day is being born.

The sunlight touches the tops of trees,
As it releases them from the night.
The dawn chorus sing their melodies,
As the birds welcome the summer light.

Rabbits emerging from underground,
Welcome the sunshine of this new day.
Nature is everywhere to be found,
As the sunshine sweeps the night away.

The Woodland in Spring (poem)


The beauty of spring in the woods.

Woodland flowers

The Woodland in Spring

The crocuses and the snowdrops bring forth their colour,
Everywhere white, orange, and purple can be seen.
Bringing a brightness to the woodlands winter pallor,
Bringing to an end, winters shades of lonely green.

The daffodils reach up, unveiling their yellow glory,
Their heads nodding whenever a passing breeze is found.
Such a scattering of colours, showing nature’s spring story
Such is the beauty of wildflowers, growing all around.

On the branches, a touch of blossom’s starting to show,
The promise of new fruits upon the bushes and the trees.
Slowly their petals unfurl, and their flowers start to grow,
The promise of nectar for the butterflies and bees.

The hedgehogs appear and the birds begin their nesting,
The woodland’s preparing for all their young to arrive.
In spring, there is no time for nature to be resting,
For now that spring is here, the woodland has come alive.

Mountain rainstorm (poem)


The wonder of rain falling on a mountain

Mountain Rainstorm

In the mountains up high,
The rain falls from the sky,
Its water crashing down onto the ground.
In this stormy weather,
The rain comes together,
Between the rocks, new puddles are found.

These puddles spread and grow,
Their waters begin to flow,
Creating small streams that tumble and fall.
Flowing down the mountainside,
Over the rocks these streams ride,
Until a river is formed from them all.

Into the valley below,
The leaping river does flow,
As down from the mountain it descends.
Sparkling in the sunlight,
The waters clear and bright.
When it reaches the lake, its journey ends.

Nature’s Midsummer Music (poem)


The beauty of the birds in summer

Nature’s Midsummer Music

The Robin calls as sunrise begins,
Announcing that it is getting light.
Silence fades as every bird sings,
Their dawn chorus chases the night.

The Red Kite flies smoothly above,
Crying out as it watches below.
In the garden lands a Collard Dove,
Cooing as it walks to and fro.

The Swallows can be heard up high,
In the warmth of the afternoon.
Swiftly they zoom across the sky,
Singing out loud their high-pitch tune.

Sparrows are chattering in the tree,
Before they descend onto the ground.
Hopping all around the lawn to see,
What seeds and insects can be found.

The Nightingale calls as sunset nears,
The birds start to settle for the night.
But the Barn Owl hoots as it appears,
Opening its wings and taking flight.
