'I am a nature lover'


I am a nature lover
I wonder what it’s like to be the squirrel looking for nuts
I hear the frog croaking at twilight
I see the tall, tall tree above me
I want pollution to come to an end
I am a nature lover

I pretend I am the deer, wandering through the forest
I feel the flower’s sweet petals
I touch the tree’s soft bark
I worry about bears being killed because of break-ins
I cry when my cat kills a bird
I am a nature lover

I understand why you have to stay on the trail
I say “Give a hoot and don’t pollute”
I dream of flying south with the birds
I hope that all animals will live in peace
I am a nature lover

Poem of the Day

poet Katharine Lee Bates

O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
America! America!
