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;

    Waxing meditative and sage about Mortality, as this poem ultimately does, mitigates its inherent insult. PoemHunter, there is a spelling error three lines from the bottom: *eternal it its stay.* (Report) Reply

    Why do people offer praise and advice to someone who's been dead for 150 years? Methinks thou overestimate the powers of ye poemhunter.com. (Report) Reply

    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!

    Well done indeed! I'm sure you'll improve with more practice: -)

    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.

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
