A Celebration To The Wonders Of Life
It's a truly fascinating wonderful world we live in and nature poems perfectly portray the beauty nature has to offer. These inspiring poems remind us of the many wonderful things that we sometimes too easily take for granted.
Many famous poets and writers have constantly found and endless source of inspiration from simply being outside and appreciating everything nature has to offer no matter how small or simple it may seem. I Wandered Lonely As A Cloud by William Wordsworth is a perfect example of the joy and pleasure gained from the simple sight of daffodils that most of us witness every spring-time.
"beauty in the park!"
I often find these poems serve as encouragement for all of us to spend a little more time outside to really enjoy and appreciate nature for all it's worth. This is something that can really benefit our own spiritual and physical well being.
Nature can be readily and easily enjoyed by most of us, no matter where we may be. Many simple natural pleasures and joys can be found in our very own back gardens, or by simply taking a walk through a local park and enjoying the tranquil sights and sounds of birds and bees, colourful flowers and butterfly's, sunsets and morning dew. These things are all there to be enjoyed and to provide inspiration.
"that the lowest boughs and the brushwood sheaf round the elm-tree bole are in tiny leaf,"
It really is amazing what the changing seasons have to offer and this is reflected in nature poems.
Nature offers a calmness, a sense of spiritual well being in a busy hectic lifestyle that many people live nowadays. It can be like meditation, or a tranquil place to gather one's thoughts and to reflect. Getting out and enjoying nature can help to reduce stress, relax the body and calm the mind - all the things that can benefit our long term health!
Sea, rivers, the countryside, mountains, plains and fields have all found their way into classic poems, along with trees, flowers, insects, birds, the changing seasons - the list is endless. This is the beauty of poetry, it really can help us to understand the things around us that are there to be enjoyed.
Enjoying these nature poems will not only be a pleasure in themselves, but hopefully inspire everyone who reads and listens to them to get out and explore what's nearby. Being outside in the natural light and taking in the fresh air will have many long term benefits to one's health and well being. And when you get back home you will be inspired to read more nature poems, or even to write your own - who knows!
So relax and immerse yourself into the wonders of nature through this collection of inspiring poetry, and please come back again as more poems will be added.
