The glory of nature – Dawn (poem)

A new dawn has arrived

The glory of nature – Dawn

Let nature rise up in glory,
With the coming of the new sun.
Let the birds sing out their story,
For natures day has now begun.

Let the dawn call upon the mist,
To begin this day in shadows.
Let the deer browse through the forest,
As the cows graze in their meadows.

Let the hedgehogs go off to sleep,
As their night of foraging ends.
Let the willow tree gently weep,
As the river flows round its bends.

Let all the creatures of the day,
Greet this new dawn, so fresh and bright.
Let nature find a better way,
Travelling from dawn until night.

What is a cat? (Cat poem)

Introduction to cats

What is a cat?

A cat is a creature covered in fur,
Captivating us humans with its purr.
It can be loving when it wants to be,
To give it a stoke, brings us harmony.
Upon our laps it will settle to sleep.
A loving creature is a cat to keep.

However, it is on the cats’ terms alone,
That its affection for us is ever shown.
It rules the home and decides just what to do,
And when it chooses too, it will ignore you.
It will sleep where it wants, then best left in peace,
As for its meals, it will insist on a feast!

Just why do we let our cats treat us so?
I am not sure that I will ever know.
Perhaps it is the way it makes me feel,
When it comes for a stroke after its meal.
The way its presence eases my strife,
When it comes to cats, I am hooked for life.

Purrfect sleeping place (cat poem)


Alfie knows where there’s a good place to sleep

To read Lily-Low’s first poem:
The Morning Windowsill

Purrfect Sleeping place

It’s too hot and Alfie can find no shade in his garden,
But next door, he knows just where the perfect spot can be found,
And since he is a cat, he asks for nobody’s pardon,
To climb up onto the fence and take a look around.

He knows that Lily-Low claims this garden for her own,
As her windowsill looks out upon all there is to see.
But this afternoon, her windowsill is all alone,
For in this sun, it is far too hot a place for her to be!

In stealth, he climbs down and begins to slowly creep,
Going around the bush towards that old garden seat.
Soon he will be able to fall peacefully asleep,
Deep in the shade, away from all this summer heat.

Alas, no sooner had he settled down for his snooze,
The backdoor opens and Lily-Low wanders outside.
Oh dear! Which direction is she now going to choose?
Although if he stays still, then he may be able to hide.

Lily-Low looks around, she already knows he is there!
Her white coat shining brightly in the afternoon sun.
Her green eyes saying quite clearly ‘of you, I am aware!’
And Alfie knows that it is time for him to get up and run!

Back over the fence he retreats as fast as he is able,
With a contented purr Lily-Low reclaims her own space.
But in his own garden, the sunshade is now up by the table,
So he can sleep peacefully in his own shady place!

Coby is Awake (cat poem)


Coby has woken up!

See his first poem:
Coby is sleeping
(It has the same rhyming structure as this poem)

Coby is awake

Coby is awake, and will now partake,
On a journey to the garden outside.
Going out the door, he will then explore,
All those places where creatures might hide.

Behind the flowerbed? Or under the shed?
He will see if there’s anything to be found.
All creatures must hide, when he is outside,
For it’s not safe when he is roaming around.

Pausing in his walk, is it time to stalk?
For suddenly there’s something coming his way.
Oh, it’s just a leaf! That’s such a relief,
For he really did not want to hunt today.

Now back through the door, he crosses the floor,
To the spot where his food should always be.
He yells out to all, they come to his call,
He starts purring as they prepare his tea.

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.
