Give me poetry that shows or mulls over the natural world. Whether it's an ode to the nervous system of a newt, a sonnet on the majesty of a mountain, or a haiku about the night sky. If it's something that the natural sciences might study, then give me a poem about it.

Bonus points will be awarded for powerful sensory elements and originality.


Reviews, by yours truly.
