I Love Nature

Spiritual Nursery Rhyme

I love nature
I love trees
I love the little birds
And the tiny bees

I love the moon
I love the sun
I love every morning
When the day has begun

I love cats
I love dogs
I love going for walks
Climbing on fallen logs

I love clouds
I love sky
I love the glistening stars
Shining from so very high

I love mountains
I love seas
I love standing still
And feeling the breeze

I love nature
I love it all
I love seeing
And hearing nature’s call

About This Poem

Babies, toddlers and the very young children are so full of enthusiasm for life. Coming so fresh from Source they are still able to see through the eyes of love, so to continue reminding them of their love of nature, – through the repetition of a nursery rhyme –  will strengthen their innate ability to enjoy and appreciate the simple things in life, as they are bombarded by the negativity in our world of duality.

As I have mentioned before, until a child is around six years old they absorb everything going on around them and take it into their sub-conscious as true, or the way life is. So the more positivity we can feed them, the better their life will be.

About This Poem

This nursery rhyme is obviously based on the traditional ‘1, 2, Buckle My Shoe’.

Rather than random actions or objects that rhyme with the numbers, I aimed for things that would encourage thinking and personal growth for children, and the adults teaching it to them!

About This Poem

After writing ‘My Hands, Your Hands, God’s Hands,’ I knew that I would be writing more Spiritual Nursery Rhymes and this was an obvious one to do.

I believe every newborn already knows these affirmations, but being in our dense world of vibration and picking up the energies of others, their inner-knowing and Light can diminish – but never completely!

Hearing these words repeated to them often – as in nursery rhymes – would enable them to remember the affirmations and keep their Light shining brightly, no matter what happens in their life. This is so much more beneficial to young children than the greatest majority of nonsense, and often negative, nursery rhymes that are instilled into their impressionable minds.

It is only now, as I write this today, that I have realized the significance of this poem in respect to another I know I am going to write in the next few days. If you have read my previous two poems: ‘We Are Ready,‘ and ‘Unite! Those Of The Light,‘ you’ll know I’ve mentioned there was another to go with those. Yesterday I discovered why I had not been drawn to writing it yet.  I watched a new channelling video from Blossom Goodchild and although it was not with the Federation Of Light it continued the theme of the poem I will write. I know that everything happens in Divine Timing so the words will flow when the alignment is perfect! The reason I bring this up here is because this rhyme is basically the essence of that poem, but for children!

I have quite a few poems with their pictures completed (usually the last thing I do) and I had not decided which one to add today, but when looking at the list I instantly knew it was this one. And now, with the above realization, that makes perfect sense!

My Hands, Your Hands, God’s Hands

Spiritual Nursery Rhyme

My hands touch you with love
Your hands do this too
God’s Hands always love you

My hands feed you food
Your hands try this too
God’s Hands always feed you

My hands take care of you
Your hands are learning this too
God’s Hands always care for you

My hands keep you safe
Your hands will learn this too
God’s Hands are always safe for you

My hands hold yours to guide you
Your hands will not always need me
But in God’s Hands we will always be

About This Poem

I had already written a poem called In God’s Hands, but it wasn’t until I was commenting to Amira about her poem We Are In Good Hands that the idea came to me to write one for children on the same theme.

Anyone who reads my blog regularly will know that I have had a synchronistic alignment with Amira since last summer when she first contacted me about using my poems on her blog. It was through her that I came back to WordPress to share my poems in one place. (I have a quote site Spiritual Quotes To Live By that has many of my poems, but spread over many sections and pages.) I am sure Amira won’t mind me saying that ever since our initial contact there have been an abundance of things happening that have led us both to be more of who we came here to be!

So, as I was writing my comment to Amira, I knew I was going to write a poem for children about being in God’s Hands. I have written several Spiritual Poems For Children, but this one I knew was going to be for very young children and then perhaps I’d write another version for older ones. – (update: 21st July new poem Changing Hands).

It took me awhile to be drawn to writing it, but when I did I felt and pictured a mother saying the rhyme as she fed her baby, repeating it over and over again, as she carried out various nurturing tasks and when just cuddling and stroking her baby. I also saw her still saying the rhyme as the baby grew and became a toddler and older, adapting the words slightly as the child began to feed itself etc.. 

Nursery rhymes have been repeated countless times to babies and toddlers for generations. I certainly did this with my children and grandchildren. Also, I was a very moody and difficult toddler, but my mum has told me that one thing I enjoyed was her saying nursery rhymes. 

With my children (in the 80’s) I would tell them all the nursery rhymes I could remember and also bought them books to learn more. But, by the time my grandchildren started to arrive I was becoming more aware of the power of words and began to notice how totally negative most of them are, so I would think about which ones to use, for example: Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star being a wonderful one to say and Three Blind Mice one to ditch. 

After writing this poem I thought of how one of my very first poems – Where Is God? – could also be classed as a nursery rhyme and so I am now thinking of writing more, as I see this as a wonderful way to nurture the Light that resides in every baby, toddler and young child… so fresh from Source.
