Steps

  1. 1
    Throughout human history, the natural world has been a rich source of inspiration for poets.
    The dichotomy of beauty and viciousness is a captivating portrayal of the struggle and desire to survive. Natural phenomena such as lightning storms and geysers are thrilling sights while biological life such as forests and animals provide us with living art and characters that we can observe performing unique acts of theater.

    Here is an example of a poem about nature:
    Tiger, tiger, burning bright In the forests of the night What immortal hand or eye could frame thy fearful symmetry? In what distant deeps or skies burnt the fire of thine eyes? On what wings dare he aspire? What the hand dare seize the fire?

    And what shoulder and what art could twist the sinews of thy heart?
    And, when thy heart began to beat, what dread hand and what dread feet? What the hammer? What the chain? In what furnace was thy brain? What the anvil? What dread grasp dare its deadly terrors clasp?

    When the stars threw down their spears, and watered heaven with their tears, did he smile his work to see?
    Did he who made the lamb make thee? Tiger, tiger, burning bright in the forests of the night What immortal hand or eye dare frame thy fearful symmetry? - The Tiger-William Blake

    Here are some points to consider when writing poems about nature.
    Observe and engage with nature: In order to write about a subject we must understand it. Spending time in nature and observing its behaviour will help you write authentically and allow you to identify and convey unique elements that others fail to notice.

    Avoid cliches:
    Try to be original in your writing. We have all read lines connecting sun with happiness or monkeys with play. Try to convey a unique image to the reader.

    Use personification:
    This technique is used to personify non-human elements, such as the weather, with human characteristics or personality. When used well it can add considerable color and richness to images and scenes creating a vivid entity for the reader to imagine.
