Now let us have a look at some beautiful poems on World Environment Day
1. Keep our Environment green,
So it will be neat and clean.
Keep it tidy and nice,
It will keep away the rats and mice.
Don't drop it put in your pocket,
Even if it's a rusty old locket,
If you drop litter you will be fined,
But if you put it in the bin no one will mind.
2. Butterflies fluttering around
Canoes moving slowly
across the subtle waves
Kids laughing and gawking
Couples holding hands
This is relaxation
This is nature
By Donna Bella
3. The little tree by the old road fence
Grew in the summer sun.
"I want to grow tall", said the little tree,
"And growing is so much fun".
The little brook running beneath the bridge
Babbled and sang all day.
"I want to become a river", it said,
"So I'm hastening on my way."
The little bird fluttered from out the nest,
And flew far across the yard.
"I'll be a big bird," said she and twittered,
"If each day I try real hard."
The little boy stood on his tiptoes and stretched.
"I'm just like the rest," said he,
"I want to grow up and see the big world -
And the sooner the better for me!"
Mother Nature smiled at all her fledglings,
But she did not bid them stay.
She knew that to live and grow and age
Is forever Nature's way.
By Lenore Hetrick
4. Trees offer to those who love them
A message of peace and rest.
They bring the glow of the setting sun
As it vanishes in the west.
They tell of years that swiftly pass,
With little mark or scar.
They tell of evenings that know naught
But calm of evening star.
Trees offer to those who love them
Infinite wisdom and grace.
Underneath their boughs tree lovers
See eternity's face.
By Lenore Hetrick
5. Trees absorb pollution
protect water catchments
Trees produce life - giving oxygen
Trees mitigate climate change
Trees are culturally important
Trees provide habitat for wildlife
Trees are a legacy for future generations.
