A Nature Lover's Diary

Rating: 4.2

i love the river between the banks
beshrew a drinker who doesn't give thanks

i love the breeze hitting my face
it's from my God, a very huge grace

i love the culver flying free
holding a branch of an olive tree

i love the sun of a shiny day
throwing on my flower a pure, yellow ray

i love the penguin standing on the ice
i love the cat chasing the the mice

i love the nature.it's beautiful and great
beshrew a beholder who doesn't meditate

a very good poem Omar, a grateful heart for the apparently small things makes a fine person. I enjoyed reading the poem and became a bit more grateful in the process. Thanks for the nice write.

pretty good and flawlessly written, but i can't relate the caption of the poem with what d matter inside... when i read th caption, 'A nature lover's diary' i thought it might xplain abt hate also...see, i'm bringing this point coz u have said 'diary'. We dont write only the things we love in our diary... nd okay, even if u want to write all the things you love and exclude man and his disasters nd. if it's a nature lover than he must hate man for all d destruction... I know it seems pretty insensitive what all i said but all's happening coz of d word, 'diary'. i think u gotta change the caption for makin it perfect.

Happy to read the mildly archaic language and the reference to Spenser! The 'ice' 'mice' lines spoil the whole, but a fine effort.

The beauty of nature is the beauty of the world. Even humans, who often times inadvertently destroy the landscape, and pollute the air, are a part of nature. Some humans are also very kind though and care for the Earth as best they can. Me, I walk outside, and see the beautiful little brook settled behind my home, and walk down the trail and all I can hear is the running of water, and the singing of the birds, and I am at peace... I believe you wrote passionately and truthfully. Thank you so much for your ingenuity... Marina Gasbey...
