Alone In The Woods Comments

Rating: 2.9
Alone in the woods I felt
The bitter hostility of the sky and the trees
Nature has taught her creatures to hate
Man that fusses and fumes

A business man has just cut some trees on a piece of land that is for all. He did it because he doesn't like the mess of leaves which enter his building. I wonder if I should send him this poem?

Man's so called mastery over the latent forces of Nature is often blatantly rejected by the Nature because of man's arrogance, pride and negative temperament which is putting the Nature into great hazard and vulnerability.........very beautifully crafted......full credit.........thanks for sharing

Nature gives peace and relaxation to the mind. I love walking in nature and enjoy its unspoiled beauty. Man has become cruel by destroying natures bounty. Nice poem.

(Alone In The Woods - Poem by Stevie Smith.) **Seems to be a displeasure with man’s innovations (chemicals and the whole shebang) because of its negative effects on nature.

Hmmm...interesting. I always try to be thankful when walking in nature just for the sheer beauty and peacefulness of it all. But yet after this reading I also understand her point of view.

I was walking alone on Alderley Edge and felt a fear and a sense of my own insignificance in the face of Nature. This poem reminds me of this.
