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.

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.

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.
