Short Poems on Nature


Carl Sandburg

Fog poem

The fog comes on little cat feet.

It sits looking

over harbor and city

on silent haunches

and then moves on.



Myra Viola Wilds

Watch the dewdrops in the morning,

Shake their little diamond heads,

Sparkling, flashing, ever moving,

From their silent little beds.

See the grass! Each blade is brightened,

Roots are strengthened by their stay;

Like the dewdrops, let us scatter

Gems of love along the way.

Sea Violet

Sea Violet

H. D.

The white violet

is scented on its stalk,

the sea-violet

fragile as agate,

lies fronting all the wind

among the torn shells

on the sand-bank.

The greater blue violets

flutter on the hill,

but who would change for these

who would change for these

one root of the white sort?


your grasp is frail

on the edge of the sand-hill,

but you catch the light—

frost, a star edges with its fire.

Trees Poem by Joyce Kilmer


Joyce Kilmer

I think that I shall never see

A poem lovely as a tree.

A tree whose hungry mouth is prest

Against the earth’s sweet flowing breast;

A tree that looks at God all day,

And lifts her leafy arms to pray;

A tree that may in summer wear

A nest of robins in her hair;

Upon whose bosom snow has lain;

Who intimately lives with rain.

Poems are made by fools like me,

But only God can make a tree.

Dead Leaves

Dead Leaves

Georgia Douglas Johnson

The breaking dead leaves ’neath my feet

A plaintive melody repeat,

Recalling shattered hopes that lie

As relics of a bygone sky.

Again I thread the mazy past,

Back where the mounds are scattered fast—

Oh! foolish tears, why do you start,

To break of dead leaves in the heart?

Poem on Nature by William Wordsworth

I wandered lonely as a Cloud


I wandered lonely as a Cloud

That floats on high o’er Vales and Hills,

When all at once I saw a crowd,

A host of golden Daffodils;

Beside the Lake, beneath the trees,

Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.


Continuous as the stars that shine

And twinkle on the Milky Way,

They stretched in never-ending line

Along the margin of a bay:

Ten thousand saw I at a glance,

Tossing their heads in sprightly dance.


The waves beside them danced, but they

Out-did the sparkling waves in glee:—

A Poet could not but be gay

In such a jocund company:

I gazed—and gazed—but little thought

What wealth the shew to me had brought:


For oft when on my couch I lie

In vacant or in pensive mood,

They flash upon that inward eye

Which is the bliss of solitude,

And then my heart with pleasure fills,

And dances with the Daffodils.

Poem on Nature by Emily Dickinson

A Bird came down the Walk

A Bird came down the Walk

A Bird came down the Walk—

He did not know I saw—

He bit an Angleworm in halves

And ate the fellow, raw,


And then he drank a Dew

From a convenient Grass—

And then hopped sidewise to the Wall

To let a Beetle pass—


He glanced with rapid eyes

That hurried all around—

They looked like frightened Beads, I thought—

He stirred his Velvet Head


Like one in danger, Cautious,

I offered him a Crumb

And he unrolled his feathers

And rowed him softer home—


Than Oars divide the Ocean,

Too silver for a seam—

Or Butterflies, off Banks of Noon

Leap, plashless as they swim.

There is another sky

There is Another Sky

There is another sky,

Ever serene and fair,

And there is another sunshine,

Though it be darkness there;

Never mind faded forests, Austin,

Never mind silent fields –

Here is a little forest,

Whose leaf is ever green;

Here is a brighter garden,

Where not a frost has been;

In its unfading flowers

I hear the bright bee hum:

Prithee, my brother,

Into my garden come!

Poem on Nature by Robert Frost

Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening

Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening

Whose woods these are I think I know.

His house is in the village though;

He will not see me stopping here

To watch his woods fill up with snow.


My little horse must think it queer

To stop without a farmhouse near

Between the woods and frozen lake

The darkest evening of the year.


He gives his harness bells a shake

To ask if there is some mistake.

The only other sound’s the sweep

Of easy wind and downy flake.


The woods are lovely, dark and deep.

But I have promises to keep,

And miles to go before I sleep,

And miles to go before I sleep.

Poem on Nature by John Keats

To Autumn Poem

To Autumn

Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness,

Close bosom-friend of the maturing sun;

Conspiring with him how to load and bless

With fruit the vines that round the thatch-eves run;

To bend with apples the moss’d cottage-trees,

And fill all fruit with ripeness to the core;

To swell the gourd, and plump the hazel shells

With a sweet kernel; to set budding more,

And still more, later flowers for the bees,

Until they think warm days will never cease,

For summer has o’er-brimm’d their clammy cells.


Who hath not seen thee oft amid thy store?

Sometimes whoever seeks abroad may find

Thee sitting careless on a granary floor,

Thy hair soft-lifted by the winnowing wind;

Or on a half-reap’d furrow sound asleep,

Drowsed with the fume of poppies, while thy hook

Spares the next swath and all its twined flowers:

And sometimes like a gleaner thou dost keep

Steady thy laden head across a brook;

Or by a cider-press, with patient look,

Thou watchest the last oozings, hours by hours.


Where are the songs of Spring? Ay, where are they?

Think not of them, thou hast thy music too,–

While barred clouds bloom the soft-dying day,

And touch the stubble-plains with rosy hue;

Then in a wailful choir the small gnats mourn

Among the river sallows, borne aloft

Or sinking as the light wind lives or dies;

And full-grown lambs loud bleat from hilly bourn;

Hedge-crickets sing; and now with treble soft

The redbreast whistles from a garden-croft,

And gathering swallows twitter in the skies.

How to Write a Poem on Nature

Writing a poem about nature necessitates both peace and poetic ability. However, if you are a beginner, you can still write an amazing poem about nature by following these steps.


Get Inspired

To write a poem on nature, first of all, you need to read certain poetic works. You may carefully examine those works in the above-mentioned poems of Robert Frost or Wordsworth. This will give you inspiration and ideas for the poem you are aspiring to write. Read at least 5 poems on nature before writing one. 

Observe Around You

After reading the poetic works, you need to walk out of your room. The art of poetry is learned in the open, around nature itself. Observe your surroundings such as dew drops in the morning, the white cloud formation in the blue sky, a bud, trees, rain, the chirping of birds, snowfall, sunrays, etc. 

When you observe nature in your surroundings, you will get peace and a feeling of bliss in your heart. If these things make you smile, you are one step closer to writing your poem on nature. 

Spend time with Nature

Observing nature will help you in your imagination. But to help that imagery, you need to spend time with nature. Find a noiseless place where nature (trees, plants, beauty, and animals) is in abundance. Imagine how these little things are giving you joy and compare these emotions to any imagery. 

Pour Out your Emotions on Paper

Now, you have your emotions and imagery. Write down your feelings about the poem. At that start, you will find it a little difficult to write one as a beginner. But let me help you in writing it. Imagine you are passing by a garden where thousands of flowers are blossoming. Now we can start it by, 

I passed by a garden, full of flowers, (this can be your first line) 

Now, write what you observed there. It can be a special bud or butterflies. Let’s continue.  

There were beautiful butterflies, but my eyes fell on a bud

Now, compare the beauty of bud to different imagery. 

That bud wasn’t small, but it was rupturing at the top. (Compare this with something else from nature) 

As something was inside, like the magma inside a volcano. 

Now, write the end, what do you observe as an ending? 

And I wanted it to erupt, to scatter the fragrance around

Your short poem will look like this, 

I passed by a garden, 

full of flowers,

There were beautiful butterflies, 

but my eyes fell on a bud. 

That bud wasn’t small, 

but it was rupturing at the top.

And I wanted it to erupt, 

to scatter the fragrance around. 

Use Rhymes to Make it Better

Rhyming helps in making the poem better and easy to read. To make a poem rhyme, you need to rhyme the last word in one line to the last word in the second line. For example, the rhyme of small is whole, and the rhyme of top is the crop. You may choose any rhyming word but the main task is to connect both rhymes. Check Learn & Fun to know how rhyming work.

Let’s see how our poem looks with a rhyme. 

I passed where a garden lies

full of flowers & wood

There were beautiful butterflies

but my eyes fell on a bud

That bud wasn’t small

but it was rupturing at the top.

As wanted to erupt as a whole

to scatter the fragrance on the crop
