Nature’s Songs--By John W. (Bill) Williams--United States

Nature’s Songs

I find my greatest inspiration
In the solitude of nature,
Where melodies of whippoorwills’ shrills
Disturb night’s silence,
Here by this old mountain road
I listen and nod to each
Distant melody; it is never lonely
When my soul is absorbed with peace
That comes from nature’s songs.

  2. Dear John,

    I really enjoyed reading your poem about Nature's Songs as I am inspired by nature too. I can picture the lovely place you reside and the sounds of the birds you describe it sounds like paradise. Beautifully written, John!

  3. Nature is home of peace. I can relate to your poem, and I could imagine the presence of nature in every line of your poem. Thanks for writing a mesmerising poem.
