Love nature more | Lord Byron

BIG-poetry2017-01Jan

 

There is a pleasure in the pathless woods,

There is a rapture on the lonely shore,

There is society, where none intrudes,

By the deep sea, and music in its roar:

I love not man the less, but Nature more.

Lord Byron (1788-1824)

Save yourselves from climate change

BIG-SUpoetry-01-SaveYourselves-NEW2

 

Four and a half billion years ago, I was born;

Only two hundred thousand years is your age.

I can survive even if you humans are gone;

Save yourselves, not me, from climate change!

Asitha Jayawardena

Better-dressed nature | Isaac Watts

BIG-poetry2017-11Nov

 

The tulip and the butterfly

Appear in gayer coats than I:

Let me be dressed fine as I will,

Flies, worms, and flowers exceed me still.

Isaac Watts (1674-1748)

A meaning to mind | Alfred Tennyson

BIG-poetry2017-10Oct

 

Any man that walks the mead

In bud, or blade, or bloom, may find

A meaning suited to his mind.

A sensitive plant… | Percy Bysshe Shelley

BIG-poetry2017-09Sep

 

A sensitive plant in a garden grew,

And the young winds fed it with silver dew,

And it opened its fan-like leaves to the light,

And closed them beneath the kisses of night.

Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792-1822)
