Sing a Song of Seasons: A Nature Poem for Each Day of the Year by Fiona Waters

song of nature poem

Let war and trade and creeds and song Blend, ripen race on race, The sunburnt world a man shall breed Of all the zones and countless days. Will never my winds go sleep in the west? Too much of donning and doffing, Too slow the rainbow fades, I weary of my robe of snow, My leaves and my cascades; I tire of globes and races, Too long the game is played; What without him is summer's pomp, Or winter's frozen shade? I moulded kings and saviors, And bards o'er kings to rule; - But fell the starry influence short, The cup was never full. Now her long journey home begins, knowing she'll be back this way, upon a cold, late winter's day, when nights grow short and days grow long.

Poems (Emerson, Household Edition, 1904)/Song of Nature

song of nature poem

March makes her presence known, with her high pitch song of whistling winds, the wild gusty breezes, her clouds and sky become full of white like fleece set in deep blue sky, shorter days, longer nights. No ray is dimmed, no atom worn, My oldest force is good as new, And the fresh rose on yonder thorn Gives back the bending heavens in dew. And thefts from satellites and rings And broken stars I drew, And out of spent and aged things I formed the world anew; What time the gods kept carnival, Tricked out in star and flower, And in cramp elf and saurian forms They swathed their too much power. No numbers have counted my tallies, No tribes my house can fill, I sit by the shining Fount of Life And pour the deluge still; And ever by delicate powers Gathering along the centuries From race on race the rarest flowers, My wreath shall nothing miss. The poems, presented in varied layouts with an incredible array of color photographs, create an excellent gift for older children.
