Nature Poetry – An Introductory Reading Guide

Nature Poetry Guide

Since this week marks the 50th anniversary of Earth Day AND also falls within National Poetry Month, we offer the following guide to some of the most important nature poetry …

Included are twelve essential nature poets whose work we continually read and re-read. Where possible, we’ve also included links to previously posted examples of their work on our website.

8) Sara Teasdale

Sara Teasdale (1884-1933) was a poet with a broad body of work, but she wrote a significant number of nature poems, including ones about birds.

Meadowlarks
Sara Teasdale

In the silver light after a storm,
Under dripping boughs of bright new green,
I take the low path to hear the meadowlarks
Alone and high-hearted as if I were a queen.

What have I to fear in life or death
Who have known three things: the kiss in the night,
The white flying joy when a song is born,
And meadowlarks whistling in silver light.
