Example Poem

The Beauty of Natural Land

Birds are chirping so melodiously

Indicating a new day is starting
The beauty of the nature keeps me amazed
As if the world is made just for me

I close my eyes for a moment

I stretch my hand and breathe
I feel the cool breezes
The feeling of calm and peace

O the creator of nature

My admiration for this nature
Can’t be explained by words
The beauty of nature will never fade

The wind that rushes to the mountains

Makes plants in the mountains dancing
It is really beautiful
Like a garden in paradise

The beauty of nature is perfect

It always makes everyone stunned
It always makes everyone amazed
However, we must take care of it

For the beauty will never disappear
