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.

Through the winter branches (poem)


You can see a long way in winter

Through the winter branches

Through the winter branches flows the winter breeze,
Through the winter branches you can see beyond the trees.
Spring may have the blossom, in summer the trees are green,
Autumn many shades of red, but in winter the hills are seen.

Through the winter branches the sun comes to touch the ground,
Through the winter branches the wind carries every sound.
Spring may have the buds, in summer shadows fall below,
Autumn sways the leaves, but in winter the sky’s on show.

Through the winter months the sun travels low across the sky,
Through the winter months the moon and stars are seen up high.
The winter brings a freedom, a distance clarity for tired eyes,
The frost upon the branches as, on and off, the robin flies.
