Sonnet 81: On Nature


If you go down to the woods and listen
At the sound of nature all around you
To the Lark and humble cricket glisten
As the sun awakens the morning dew.

You will hear the most amazing sound
Of bird song and crickets in the warm breeze
And see squirrels coming from all around
And hear the wind rustling through the trees.

Cuckoo’s can be heard in the morning air
Woodpeckers hammering away all day
A brace of roe deer make a perfect pair
As they both run and skip and jump and play.

Nature’s wonder is beauty to behold
To behold this beauty is worth more than gold.

    beautiful sonnet indeed! though it's quite unfortunate that we have left staying connected to nature in a physical and practical way, but these poems and sonnets connect us in their own manner! ! ! (Report) Reply

    Nature’s wonder is beauty to behold
    You captured that beauty through all the activity that goes on around. Birds, crickets, deer, and squirrels, all their movements and calls are real wonders to note. Thank you for bringing together in this beautiful poem. (Report) Reply

    Nature has given us many wonders.
    But all are busy in their wonders.
    Whoever captures nature in their wonders
    Wonders captures them in their nature.

    Beautiful poem....Loved reading it. (Report) Reply

    A really great poem, with computer games and what not, the younger
    generation don't know the wonders of nature. They really don't know
    what they are missing. (Report) Reply
