    All nature has a feeling
    John Clare,
    The beauty of nature does seem to have a voice. I many times have sat in solitude and felt the companionship of God's creation. If a person wants to be open to God's voice this a wonderful opportunity to do so. You painted a picture of the reality of our hearts and minds dancing in creative vision in this lovely piece! Blessings to you..............Kathy

    Really an outstanding poem celebrating nature and its recurring beauty. Thanks. I quote:
    Is the green life of change; to pass away
    And come again in blooms revivified.

    Summing up the essence of ecology in nine lines, long before the scientific term was invented - well done, John Clare (Report) Reply

    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

    There is a misprint. The line should read:

    Its birth was heaven, eternal IS its stay,

    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!
