Nature knows the way, naturally (poem)

The wonderful work of nature

Nature knows the way, naturally

Let a rainbow be simply a rainbow,
Let it just bring colour into the sky.
Let all the stars twinkle and the moon glow,
Without having to know the reason why.

Let the butterfly spread out its wide wings,
As the caterpillar turns into one.
Let’s just enjoy all the beauty that it brings,
Without having to work out how it’s done.

Let the tides rise and fall upon the beach,
As the world rotates through night and day.
Let natures beauty be within our reach,
Without trying to guide it on its way.

Let the birds fly over the oceans wide,
Over the lands, knowing just where to go.
Let’s enjoy watching them from the bird hide,
Without understanding just how they know.

Let’s enjoy our natural world at its best,
Its seasons, the sunshine, the mountain view.
Let’s walk through the wonders of the forest,
Without trying to reason it all through.

In this world of ours, nature finds its way,
Without handbooks, everything still grows.
So let’s just enjoy what’s we see each day,
When it comes to what to do, nature knows.

A country walk (poem)

The pleasure of the countryside

A country walk

With a spring in the step, happiness in the heel,
The joy of the journey in your feet you now feel.
The hills lay before you, the dales in between,
And on the horizon great mountains are seen.

With the first gentle steps along the old track,
Your stress slides away, like a weight off your back.
Trees to your left and a brook to your right,
And when turning a corner, the birds take flight.

You stop for a rest to watch clouds drifting by,
And the skylarks and kestrels, high above fly.
A blue lake can be seen in the valley below,
Around you the bees and butterflies show.

A new view appears as you go round each bend,
As the sunset begins, so the journey must end.
Time for a rest, to relax and put up your feet,
Whilst the hedgehogs go seeking their supper

The glory of nature – Night (poem)

Nature is alive in darkness

The glory of nature – night

Let the creatures of the night rise,
As the sun surrenders the day.
Let the bats take to those dark skies,
Seeking out insects for their prey.

Let the owls stretch out their wide wings,
As they silently take to flight.
Let us sleep as the nightingale sings,
Whose sweet song echos through the night.

Let the hedgehog uncurl once more,
Seeking out small insects to eat.
Let our gardens be there to explore,
Finding food by the garden seat.

Let the fox hunt without a sound,
It’s cubs playing in the forest.
Let the night creatures roam around,
Until dawn, when they go to rest.

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.

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.

The Cat in the night (Cat poem)


A nighttime stroll!

The cat in the night

Moving silently through the deep dark night,
A suit of pure black with four boots of white.
A white tuxedo to finish her off to perfection,
A beautiful sight in the moonlights reflection.

Quietly she strolls through the garden deep,
Whilst the world around her is fast asleep.
Then through the door that is only for her,
She enters the house without causing a stir.

Upon the bed she settles down with a yawn,
To sleep in contentment until the new dawn,
Until her staff awake and see that she’s there.
To give her a stroke and show that they care.

Sitting on the fence (Cat poem)


An indecisive cat!

Sitting on the fence

Sitting on the fence, the cat casually looks around,
Should he stay up here, or go back down to the ground?
The sun is pleasant and he has enjoyed the view,
However, he can sense, that a cat nap is due.
He has been working quite hard, watching birds fly pass,
So now all he needs, is a nice patch of soft grass.

Sitting on the fence, he simply cannot decide,
Into which of these gardens he now wants to reside?
Then, from behind him, he hears an opening door,
They are letting their dog into the garden once more!
Their dog’s old and harmless, but she can be such a pest!
So into the other garden, he descends, for his rest.

Once down from the fence, he seeks out the perfect spot,
Slightly in the shade, so he doesn’t get too hot!
His fur needs some attention, some cleaning required,
Washing from ear tips to tail, he’s now feeling quite tired.
Curling up in the grass, his tail touching his nose,
A final gentle purr, then off to sleep he goes.
