The Beauty of Nature
Deep, full of analogies, and beautifully written, Emerson’s “From Nature” is a symbolic poem that explains the bond between humans and nature. One of the most popular writers, Emerson has written many wonderful poems. Standing out in his time, he was a one of a kind writer that make readers, like me, thankful for the beautiful earth God has made.

Being an outdoors men, I really love nature and the many features that come with it. Plants, trees, animals, and the many forms of water make me feel so good inside. A feeling words can not explain, and reading this poem during a time when it seems like nature is at its worse, makes me happy to have lived for so long.   “In the woods, too, a man casts off his years, as the snake his slough, and at what period soever of life is always a child.” This one line reminds me of the many amazing times I have had with my friends and family, and how even when I am older with kids I can reminisce on my past. No matter my age I will always be grateful for my experiences and moments spent in God’s creation. Emerson writes as though he also is forever grateful that he is living, even though times get tough and things do not always turn out the way we want them too. Life can be seen as a gift, or a tragedy; to most, we see it as a gift to spend every second with joy in the beautiful earth God has given us.
Emerson’s “From Nature” is beautifully written to help remind readers, such as I, to be thankful for the people and places we have seen and been apart of. I will read this poem many more times thinking of the amazing times I have had with my friends in the wonderful nature God has made.
