Nature provides great treasures of joy to our senses. To a scientist, nature has ever been puzzle. To a philosopher, Nature is constant source of inspiration. He sees in her the presence of the Devine spirit. The influence of Nature on man is preached by Wordsworth who says,
“One impulse from a vernal wood,
May teach you more of man,
Of moral, evil and of good
Than all the sages can:
Sweet is the lore
Which Nature brings;
Our meddling intellect
Misshapes the beauteous forms of things,
We murder to dissect.”
“Nature never did betray the heart that loves her. “
Wordsworth is the high priest of Nature. He believes that a visit to the mountains and lakes is equal to a visit to the church. Wordsworth feels that Nature is man’s guide, friend and philosopher. If man is depressed, the delightful scenes of Nature can enliven his spirit and make him cheerful.
Goethe has said, “Nature is the living, visible garment of God.” To John Masefield the call of the sea is irresistible. Bryon looks upon the ocean as an image of God. Shakespeare finds sermons in stones, tongues in trees and books in running books. Shelley looks upon the West Wind as destroyer and preserver. An artist tries to imitate Nature in his work of art. Poets, painters and philosophers have been charmed but the beauties of nature. The velvety lawns, the beautiful lilacs, the dancing daffodils, the snow covered mountains, the picturesque gardens, the tender plants, the rising sun, the moonlit and the rainbow, the dales meadows, forests, rivers brooks and oceans-all have charm for us. Birds and animals present a pageant quite delightful. The chanting of nightingales, the bleating of lambs, the mewing of cats, the buzzing of bees, the gay of butterflies, the chirping of sparrows-all these present a delightful sight. A layman finds in nature an escape from the worries and suffering of the world.
Nature surpasses in beauty all man made things. The beauty of nature is one of the greatest blessings which God has given to mankind. Since ages lovers have made love in the lap of Nature and poets and writers have written about the beauties of Nature. The modern industrial civilization has no doubt made heavy in-roads on the haunts of Nature. Yet it remains a thing of job forever.
The beauties of Nature offer a rich feast of delight to the eyes and ears of man. The rift of the dawn, the crimson sunrise, the glowing sunset, the bright moon, the twinkling stars, the bright streams, the snowcapped mountains- all these beauties of nature are indeed fascinated. The chirping birds also add to the beauty of Nature.
It is a pity that modern man has no touch with Nature. He has sold his heart in the money market. Wordsworth rightly laments that the world is too much with us. The modern man is completely cut off from Nature. The sea bathed in the moon light and the gently blowing winds do not appeal to him.
Nature is everywhere beautiful. But there are occasions when Nature is even red in tooth and claw. When the sea is rough and storm are blowing, a boat-man caught on the high sea has to fight against the fury of Nature to reach a place of safety. But by and large Nature offers us many beauties.
The star-spangled sky, the floating clouds, the multi-colored rainbow, shining dew drops, butterflies flitting from flower to flower, glowing-worms shedding light – all give us beauty and joy.
Summing up, we can say that beauties of Nature are everywhere and we must feast our with them. The beauties are always fresh and they never become old and stale. The cycle of changing seasons in a year keeps on replenishing the beauties of Nature from time to time. Man should go to the nature and experience the joy it offers us. The great variety which manifests itself in thousand shapes makes us feel that the spirit of God pervades all the objects of Nature.
