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

Daisies and Buttercups (poem)


Small wonders of nature

Daisies and Buttercups

Daisies and buttercups, in the meadows grow,
Small sparkles of gold and white petals on show.
A splendid gathering of meadow flowers,
Swaying in a breeze, dancing in the showers.
Reaching up to the sun on a warm summers day,
The daisies close their eyes, when night is on its way.
The bees buzz around them, their nectar to collect,
The birds seek between them, for insects to detect.
A meadow of wonder, nature’s summer delight,
And on any country walk, a beautiful sight.

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.
