Environmental Poetry

Have you ever felt water?
Slow waves, dancing with the wind,
Touching your hand like a pillow, changing smoothly.

Chiara L.



Clean, green, sunshine,

Play outside, picnics, death, bad air,

Sick animals, no joy, dirty seas,


Sibel D.

Have you ever felt sand,
Smooth, very dry,
liquid like, soft as a pillow.

Ali K.

Have you ever seen a tree?
Emerald leaves, long branches,
Amazing trunk, beautiful flourishing.

David C.

Have you ever seen the woods?
Swaying peacefully, playing with the air,
Following the Earth’s patterns, thorns red as blood.

Morgan L.

Have you ever seen water?
Soothing waves, wet feeling,
Blue ocean, deep sea.

Nico C.

Have ever seen a plain all covered with grass?
Little animals, moving lively,
beautiful flowers, spreading colour.

Fidan H.

Have you ever seen a tree?
Reducing CO2, making green,
Giving air, cleaning Earth.

Dong Hyun C.


Green, wild

Living, breathing, crowded,

Happy face, grandma, son, hope,

Growing, nothing, boiling,

Playing, dry,


Cho Ha K.


Polluted, vile,

Revolting, disgusting, stained,

Murky, grimy, wholesome, natural,

Unblemished, refreshing, unchanged,

Pure, pristine,


Jan H.

Have you ever seen a bin?
A rubbish loving, Earth saving,
Amazingly cool, Usable recyclable. 

Danielle D.


Oceans, Plant,

Recycling, Reducing, Reusing,

Wild life, Fresh, Impure, Cloudy,

Polluted, Uncleaned, Wasting,

Factories, Fumes,


Sam B.


Impure, Fumes,

Disgusting, Wasting, Plastic, Gloomy,

CO2, Plants, Trees, Wild life,

Pure, Air, Water,


Shahir Q.

M1’s wrote Dylan Thomas Portraits and Diamantes to celebrate Earth Week in 2012. They then published the poems on a lantern to display. Some of them are little hard to read on the lantern so you can read them here!
