All nature has a feeling


All nature has a feeling: woods, fields, brooks
Are life eternal: and in silence they
Speak happiness beyond the reach of books;

    There is a misprint. The line should read:

    Its birth was heaven, eternal IS its stay, (Report) Reply

    John Clare, a master poet could have decribed Nature more in detail than through a perfunctory few words.I won't sing praise for this poem and at the ame time, I won't disown it.Well done John!

    This is not one of Clare's best poems. He is much better when describing nature in detail rather than trying to be Wordsworthian and philosophizing. Some of these descriptions, like 'Little Trotty Wagtail', for example are delightful, humorous and exact. (Report) Reply

    The beauty of nature, its glory untold.
    Its birth and death, goes on and on.
    Unending life, not just like man.

    Thanks John, you brought the work of nature into my life tonight. (Report) Reply

    Anyone recognize this gem?

    our years seem darkened to a church for you
    in which your face alone shines through
    the air is thick with the remembered scent of you

    Is it 'flowery, cloudy (sic) nonsense'? (Report) Reply

    CLARA - seems to be hearing things of truths and reality's in the wilds of life. Telling of gentle things surrounding our reality. {{ Surely a vintage poem }} (Report) Reply

    I don't just like the message, i love the entire composition. The meaning is like a summer morning, the lines flow like tide and it stays like blood in my vein. (Report) Reply

    I can see where you are coming from. Nature is beautiful I must argree. The earth is a lovely place. Lets hope it lives on for many years to come without us killing it.
    good poem. (Report) Reply

    I love the message here.
    I am, however, a bit confused as to the pattern of the poem. Did you mean to rhyme? If so, what pattern were you attempting? That aspect detracts from the impact of this piece.

    The mark of a true poet is the ability to see things as they are to the mind and spirit, rather than as they appear to be on the surface. You let this quality shine in this work. Excellent! (Report) Reply

    What continues to amaze me about Clare's poems is that, superficially, they seem like they 'ought' to be bad! And yet, and yet, they unfold themselves in inexplicably subtler and subtler ways with each reading. Clare is probably the avatar of a Japanese haikuist given somewhat (though not greatly) larger scope in the English post-Romantic sensibilities and forms of the mid-19th century. (Report) Reply

The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
