The sun’s heading south for winter (poem)

The sun is not keen on winter

The sun’s heading south for winter

The sun’s heading south for its winter break,
It’s crossing the equator about now.
Leaving the crops of summer in its wake,
As they disappear under autumns plough.

There’s now a slight chill in the air at dawn,
The curtains closing earlier each night.
There’s no sign yet of the frost on the lawn,
But it won’t be long until it’s in sight.

The window’s open for a while at noon,
As the sun throws back the last of its heat.
You can tell that autumn will be here soon,
But you are glad for that last summer treat.

Gardens are trimmed before winters cold breath.
Summers items packed away for the year.
Autumns landscape looks a little bereft,
With the hint that winter is getting near.

The sun leaves behind a land going bare.
But also leaves a promise as it goes.
For some green shoots of spring are hiding there,
Kept warm by the autumn leaves and hedgerows.

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 – Sunset (poem)

Nature is settling down

The glory of nature – sunset

Let the red sky light up the west,
Arriving with the setting sun.
Let the Robin fly to its nest,
Now that all its singing is done.

Let all the flowers’ petals close,
Their nectar taken by the bees.
Let the sweet scent come from the rose,
Floating upon the evening breeze.

Let the deer settle in the forest,
The squirrel settles in its dray.
Let the butterflies come to rest,
Folding their rainbow wings away

Let the rabbits settle for the night,
Safe in their underground barrow.
Let daytime creatures fade from sight,
As they sleep until tomorrow.

The glory of nature – Noon (poem)

Nature is alive

The glory of nature – Noon

Let the noon sun light up the day,
As the green leaves grow in its light.
Let the swifts and the swallows play,
Swirling in suits of black and white.

Let the squirrels race through the trees,
Searching for nuts that they can eat.
Let the tides pull upon the seas,
Engaging with the moons heartbeat.

Let the butterflies bring beauty,
With their colourful wings on show.
Let the bees buzz on the fruit tree,
Collecting nectar as they go.

Let the grass in the meadows sway,
As the noon breeze touch the flowers.
Let natures glory shine on this day,
Whether it be sunshine or showers.

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.

Blue skies from Storm clouds (poem)

Clear skies return

Blue skies from Storm clouds

A touch of Blue,
Is now in view,
Are those grey storm clouds departing at last?
Just a small zone,
It stands alone,
Does it mean this storm is now in the past?

It seems less dark,
Not quite so stark,
There’s another patch of blue I can see.
A patchwork sky,
Now seen up high,
From those storm clouds, the sky is breaking free.

More blue than grey,
A brighter day,
Even the sun is now showing its face.
It’s getting warm,
After the storm,
As the sun begins to dry up this place.

Now it’s just blue,
No clouds in view,
The storms but a memory in my mind.
The sun’s on show,
Out I shall go,
To enjoy the freshness, it’s left behind.

The bridge over the river (poem)

The life around a bridge

The bridge over the river

Under the bridge the river flows,
Next to where the old willow grows.
Upon its branch a robin sings,
A duck swims pass with her ducklings.
A swan glides by, calm and serene,
Beside her, two cygnets are seen.
Under the bridge they pass on through,
Off to seek their food somewhere new.
Upon a rock a toad sits there,
While fishes swim everywhere.

Over the bridge the people walk,
Up in the air flies a sparrowhawk.
Children stop on the bridge midway,
Deciding just where they should play.
Under the bridge from the hot sun,
They set up camp and have some fun.
Across the surface, stones they skim,
Before diving in for a swim.
At four o’clock, their games they pack,
Then over the bridge, they walk back.

A touch of winter sunshine (poem)

Enjoying the coldest season

A touch of winter sunshine

A touch of winter sunshine,
On a cold and chilly day.
A moment of feeling fine,
Before the sun fades away.

A chance to see a clear sky,
Frost sparkling in the light.
Winter’s sun just passing by,
Before dragging back the night.

A moment of blue splendour,
So crisp, so bright, and so clear.
Winter’s world there to adore,
Before the dark night draws near.

A time of winter’s pleasure,
A freshness at winter’s noon.
A moment we can treasure.
Before the sun sets too soon.

A chance to refresh our lives,
Enjoy winter at its best.
Watch how the winter world thrives,
Before going home to rest.
