Poem about environment and nature
Can Poetry Save the Earth?: A Field Guide to Nature Poems by John FelstinerPoems vivifying nature have gripped people for centuries. From Biblical times to the present day, poetry has continuously drawn us to the natural world. In this thought-provoking book, John Felstiner explores the rich legacy of poems that take nature as their subject, and he demonstrates their force and beauty. In our own time of environmental crises, he contends, poetry has a unique capacity to restore our attention to our environment in its imperiled state. And, as we take heed, we may well become better stewards of the earth.
In forty brief and lucid chapters, Felstiner presents those voices that have most strongly spoken to and for the natural world. Poets—from the Romantics through Whitman and Dickinson to Elizabeth Bishop and Gary Snyder—have helped us envision such details as ocean winds eroding and rebuilding dunes in the same breath, wild deer freezing in our presence, and a person carving initials on a still-living stranded whale.
Sixty color and black-and-white images, many seen for the first time, bear
out visually the environmental imagination this book discovers—a poeticlegacy more vital now than ever.
Poetry and the Environment
Making the world a better place can sometimes be as simple as inspiring people to appreciate what they have. These poems seek to do just that - to inspire you to decide to make a difference - about climate change, about litter, about cleaning up the outdoors. Sunset in September Sunset in September Waving goodnight to us all Glowing bright orange in the sky Awesome colours surrounding your glow Sky clear of clouds a calmness flow Stirring emotions grow Inspirational vision Painting a picture in these poetic words Picturesquely descending Blessed to catch a glimpse of your majesty Environments clock night-time calling Earth settles and nature true An autumn moment finally past The spectacle now out of view Swell of pride and something to remember Till we meet again, time to think of the time we saw a sunset in September. I am an amateur poet looking to share my short poems with you. I do hope you enjoy reading them as much as I have had in putting them together.
I am a little pink Rose! I bloomed to see This beautiful world, To enjoy the monsoon, The cool touch of the rains, The sweet dew drops on my petals, The gleaming, shining white pearls, The magical showers of the heaven! But Alas! When the monsoon arrived, The rains poured down in great anger, The rains pounded the earth, trees and hills, without sympathy, The rains just devoured the houses and people without any empathy! What wrong have I done to be blown away by the fiery, rainy storm? What sin have I committed to be torn and crushed into the deep earth? A poem touchingly written having been moved by the ill fate of a beautiful flower bloomed for enjoying the nature's soft caresses.
The Romantic poets , often writing about beautiful rural landscapes as a source of joy, made nature poetry a popular poetic genre. When writing environmental poems today, contemporary poets tend to write about nature more broadly than their predecessors, focusing more on the negative effects of human activity on the planet. Poets today are serving as witnesses to climate change while bringing attention to important environmental issues and advocating for preservation and conservation.

Willows blow just as they please Dancing with each subtle breeze Orchestras command the wind Much Colors bright they fill my view Though gone within a day or two A final chapter ends with wind And Long traditions with the land Are now oft lost to crete and sand There is no hope for planet three Without the water, land and trees How much land can one group take?

The power, ingenuity, and sheer beauty found in nature has always fascinated mankind. When we look at powerful ocean waves rolling in, we cannot help but feel small and powerless in comparison. Mighty trees in a vast forest inspire feelings of insignificance and awe. Animal mothers taking care of their young make us question the cruelty with which we sometimes treat one another. The truth is, nature can teach us many valuable lessons. It can also lead us to wonder, did this beautiful earth with all of its natural treasures come about by chance or was it created?
