Poetry Inspired by Nature

I was inspired by the post by Mark on celebrating nature through poetry please see below,

It made me think about the many poems with nature at their heart which have touched me over the years and there are hundreds!

One of the first was by Shakespeare in the Tempest, it is perhaps more of a song than a poem but I think it fits the bill

Where the bee sucks, there suck I”

Where the bee sucks, there suck I:

In a cowslip’s bell I lie;

There I couch when owls do cry.

On the bat’s back I do fly

After summer merrily.

Merrily, merrily shall I live now

Under the blossom that hangs on the bough.

Such a happy and piece full of imagery as is this:

‘Daffodils’ by William Wordsworth

One other poem that resonates with me is ‘The Way through the Woods’ by Rudyard Kipling – a secret world unrestrained by man you can read it here:

Happy reading 🙂

I was born and live in rural North Wales (UK) and found poetry again after a lifetime, so grateful I did :)
