November Night - Adelaide Crapsey

Listen. . .
With faint dry sound,
Like steps of passing ghosts,
The leaves, frost-crisp'd, break from the trees
And fall.


I Know Not Why by Morris Rosenfeld

I lift mine eyes against the sky,
The clouds are weeping, so am I.
I lift mine eyes again on high,
The sun is smiling, so am I.
Why do I smile? Why do I weep?
I do not know, it lies too deep.

I hear the winds of autumn sigh,
They break my heart, they make me cry.
I hear the birds of lovely spring,
My hopes revive, I help them sing.
Why do I sing? Why do I cry?
It lies so deep, I know not why.

To Make A Prairie - Emily Dickinson

To make a prairie it takes a clover and one bee,
One clover, and a bee.
And revery.
The revery alone will do,
If bees are few.


The Example - William H. Davies

Here's an example from
    A Butterfly;
That on a rough, hard rock
    Happy can lie;
Friendless and all alone
On this unsweetened stone.

Now let my bed be hard,
    No care take I;
I'll make my joy like this
    Small Butterfly;
Whose happy heart has power
To make a stone a flower.

The Oak - Alfred Lord Tennyson

          Nature poems

Live thy Life,
Young and old,
Like yon oak,
Bright in spring,
Living gold;

Then; and then
Autumn changed
Soberer hued
Gold again.

All his leaves
Falling at length,
Look, he stands,
Trunk and bough
Naked strength.


Wise Old Owl - Anonymous

A wise old owl sat in an oak,
The more he heard, the less he spoke;
The less he spoke, the more he heard;
Why aren't we all like that wise old bird?


A Vagabond Song - Bliss Carman

There is something in the autumn that is native to my blood—
Touch of manner, hint of mood;
And my heart is like a rhyme,
With the yellow and the purple and the crimson keeping time.

The scarlet of the maples can shake me like a cry
Of bugles going by.
And my lonely spirit thrills
To see the frosty asters like a smoke upon the hills.

There is something in October sets the gypsy blood astir;
We must rise and follow her,
When from every hill of flame
She calls and calls each vagabond by name.

Alone Looking At The Mountain - Li Po

All the birds have flown up and gone;
A lonely cloud floats leisurely by.
We never tire of looking at each other -
Only the mountain and I.


     Nature Poems - Poems About Nature

Poems about nature not only stir the senses, they stir the soul. As in
this poem below:

Edward Abbey from Desert Solitaire

May your trails be crooked, winding, lonesome, dangerous,
Leading to the most amazing view.
May your mountains rise into and above the clouds.
May your rivers flow without end, meandering through
Pastoral valleys tinkling with bells,
Past temples and castles and poets' towers
Into a dark primeval forest.

Where tigers belch and monkeys howl,
Through miasmal and mysterious swamps
And down into a desert of red rock, blue mesas, domes and Pinnacles and grottos of endless stone;
And down again into a deep vast ancient unknown chasm.
Where bars of sunlight blaze on profiled cliffs, where deer
Walk across the white sand beaches.

Where storms come and go as lightning
Clangs upon the high crags.
Where something strange and more beautiful
And more full of wonder than your
Deepest dreams waits for you —
Beyond that next turning of the canyon walls.
