Environment Poem by Lucy T, Year 9 LGGS

Summer scurries in
On the edge of spring
Excited to take her place
Wildly spinning with grace
But then her timer runs out
And she has to dropout
For in twirls autumn
And she alters the mood
Leaf after leaf is barbecued
Until lastly falls winter
Comes in fast like a sprinter
A blanket spreads across the globe
The temperature drops
Exhausted from her work, she flops.

Environment Poem by Bess C, Year 7 LGGS

There is a planet,
Outside this dying world
That one is free and green
Ours is dead and burnt
Oh, how I would love to see the green
See the life of the world once more
However, I don’t think we can…
Because the world is burning,
Dying
But what are we doing to help?
Nothing
We are sitting and watching TV
While trees become victims of flames
They’re wasting away but what are we doing?
Nothing
Think of the icebergs melting away
The polar bears with nowhere to stay
The plastic seas,
Home to the turtles
But soon they’ll be dead
Think of trees,
Burning away,
And why?
Us
We are doing this
We need to stop
Stop killing the planet
Stop killing the crops
It’ll start with the animals
The poor little things
Then move on to the trees
But why are we doing this?
I really don’t know
We’re killing the planet
We’ll have no place to go
So, save the world because
As people so often say,
There is no planet B
Save the world today

Environment Poem by Zahra M, Year 7 LGGS

The environment what a beautiful place to be,
Trees swaying, waves crashing how nice to see
On an autumn morning the leaves are falling
The colours start to change
The cool breeze swirling around you
The leaves are thinner than a page
The squirrels rushing to find something to eat
In the countryside where the sound is only a buzzing bee
Or in the forest where the trees are whispering
Birds are singing and the leaves are dancing so far away
The environment what a beautiful place to be,
Near the coast where the waves are crashing against the shore
And the seagulls are chirping so much more
The hot desert that you never want to be
Goes on and on and never stops
The environment what a beautiful place to be

Ash by Weronika S, Year 9 LGGS

Ash.
The remains of leaves coat bare earth,
like smoke
and with it
tree-dwellers nest in trunks of bare trees,
their branches glazed with a frost
coaxing all into a wary slumber
while the forest holds its breath
impatient for the solaced arrival of spring.

Spring has sprung
and with it,
come times of consolation,
as life revives itself
from the deep doze that had enveloped it.
With plentiful warmth,
seeping through trees and into the ground
enveloping like a soothing blanket.
And with it,
comes new life.

Summer arrives,
and with it
unwelcome, stifling heat
soaking all in an uncomfortable warmth,
while waves of stifling heat
batter the land.

Autumn comes
and with it
the beginning of the frost.
Preparation has begun
and tree-dwellers work at their stores
and with them works the whole forest
as unfathomable cold sweeps through it,
enveloping the land in a
widespread shiver.
Whirls like shrunken tornadoes
stir the earth,
blanketed by leaves
in shades of orange and brown hue.
While hibernators shuffle in their dens
preparing for their winter sleep
bringing consolation
which takes them away
until warmth swathes the land,
while the leaves turn to
Ash.

The rising sun by Violet Q, Year 7 LGGS

The moon, the stars, the snow-capped hills,
Rivers, lakes and all things filled
With love and life and peace and joy,
This sacred world that we destroy

Dumping debris in our ocean
Wrecking our planet with no emotion
No regrets, or guilt or sorrow,
Destroying our earth like there’s no tomorrow.

Darkness filling our once vibrant home,
Animals dying that used to roam
Our beautiful habitat, our special place,
Which now resembles a world of waste.

The rising sun brings hope again
To rid the world of all this pain
Take arms against natures foe
A new landscape we begin to grow.

The Castle on the Hill by Verity D, Year 7 LGGS

At the top of a hill is where I stand,
Often forgotten but always there,
To tourists I’m just an attraction,
But my history holds lots of action,
On winter days I’m hidden by the mist,
So camouflaged, I’m easily missed,
Cars drive past, some see, and some don’t,
The wind keeps my flag held high,
And I often dread the days that it is only halfway to the sky,
The keys to me are kept very hidden,
All the way in London in a big palace fit for a king,
The local homeowners get to see my beauty in the morning,
But I think others forget to even see up from their phone unlocking,
Before phones came into this universe,
I was the only thing that made them feel that they were away from the outside world,
When cars speed past,
Their engines roar and release sour gas,
It sometimes damages my bricks and puts people off because of the mist,
I wish it was like the old time when people took carriages and pointed out my gates to their kids,
Now all they do is look past what lies behind my bricks,
So, if you ever see me on a walk or in the car,
Please come and see all that lies behind my golden crest.

Their Home by Valentina C, Year 8 LGGS

A forest of birds, foxes, and deer
Once a beautiful scene, animals hidden but present
Peaceful sounds and paths that curve around the woodland
Environment of serenity, calm.
And now, cars drive past
Their engines roaring so loudly the atmosphere changes completely
Home… ‘Where’s home?’ They ask
Save it we can, if our world forces combine
It is true that I am guilty, in you I confide
Now read the first word on every line

Danger to our planet! by Teodora L, Year 7 LGGS

Our planet is dying killed by our hand,
Wherever you look there’s no more green land.
We’re all buying a big fancy car,
Leaving on our planet an enormous scar.
We are building more and more
So, Earth no longer looks like before.

People are leaving litter everywhere
When you can find a bin nearly anywhere.
We’re spending billions to study space,
When saving our planet feels like a race.
Fish are dying in the seas,
Nobody is planting trees,
Animals are disappearing,
Hunting season is all we’re hearing.

A simple life and being selfless
Would help our planet feeling hopeless.
If everyone would try together
We’ll make our planet live forever
Building less and planting more
We’ll change our planet to the core.
Clean the oceans and fish less
And then finally we’ll see some progress.
Use public transport, driving less
And climate change we will supress.

Environment Worries by Sylvie C, Year 7 LGGS

Planet Earth – We’re ruining it

We’re clogging up the atmosphere

Littering the ground, the concrete-coated ground

Buildings surround.

The animals are dying

People are crying

Everything’s going wrong.

But a flame of hope is shining brightly

Guiding our footsteps

We can save the planet

If we spread the word because all is not lost

If we try and try and try to:

Help the bees

Plant more trees

And save the seas!

Lancaster Library by Ruby H, Year 8 LGGS

I rush through town in haste
To reach my perfect safe place
One man stops me, just to say
‘Why run so fast that way?’
I turn and tell him, showing my cheer,
‘Lancaster Library is over here’

‘A world of knowledge free to everyone’
Man ‘But the thing is there’s never one’
‘That I live close to, will it accept me here’
Me ‘it doesn’t matter how near’
‘You live where you live it’s not a problem’
‘Just come, the books are awesome’

Morecambe on a winter’s day by Rose J, Year 7 LGGS

A dog runs on the forsaken beach,
The sea is distant, out of reach,
The sea and sky meet in a symphony of grey,
This is Morecambe on a winter’s day.

Looking back towards the town,
Chip shop litter, strewn around,
A chip become a seagull’s prey,
This is Morecambe on a winter’s day,

The setting sun casts a fiery glow,
On the bare beds where spring flowers will grow,
And an empty playground where no children play,

This is Morecambe on a winter’s day.

Environment Poem by Rebecca H, Year 8 LGGS

Installed in my throne of leather,
Wrapped within my Safety harness,
Whilst taking a gander out the window.

Enclosed in my metal ride,
Sights whizzing past,
Enjoying the endless tranquillity,
Taking over the wheel of authority.

As we drove,
The road turned rainbow
from the oil spills.

Think about the world while your sitting there,
Think about the danger of our species,
While taking a gander out the window.

Exposed to the truth of this ride,
Smokey images blurred past,
Constant terror for our planet,
And the wheel to our future takes over you.

Reduce, Re-use, Recycle by Olivia C, Year 7 LGGS

We’re damaging this planet with deforestation
Ridding habitats just for a lousy train station
Driving bulky cars on many many roads
My goodness, we’re polluting the air loads

The wildlife is suffering, we need to make a move
Ride a bike or plant some trees, that’s the way to groove!
Help the planet, grow some veg
Don’t put our planet on the edge

Trains, boats, trams, all of the above
Are hurting creatures big and small, as harmless as a dove!
Big metal tubes flying through the air
You’d really risk the ozone layer just for a comfy chair?

It’s not just on the land, it’s in the sea too
We shouldn’t just forget about it because it’s big and blue
The species in the sea are dying ‘cause of you
Can’t you just re-use a plastic bottle or two?

Reduce, Re-use, Recycle, that’s what they all say
Stop the whole earth from going dull and grey
Reduce, Re-use, Recycle is that okay?
Be the good guy and save the day!

My Environment Poem by Millie O’C, Year 8 LGGS

The depths of the sea,
Animals and sea life swim free.
Although beautiful, vast and blue,
The innocent creatures are dying because of you.
The ocean is full of plastic,
Things like bottles and elastic.
Easy enough to find its way into a creature’s mouth,
All animals, even in the south.
Are dying this tragic way,
Almost every single day.
Our amazing sea,
Where people come and leave.
We swim in its lovely waters,
With our fathers, mothers, sons and daughters.
We have cared for the ocean many times,
Now its time for us to stop polluting the water as it seems as if it was a crime.

Environment by May S, Year 7 LGGS

A cool, bleak autumn day, not a sound, not a word, not a soul in sight.

But one thing breaks the silence.

The whispering and fluttering of a plastic bag in the breeze.

Dancing on the currents of air, flying over rooftops coming to gentle stop on frosty pavements.

Then it’s up again, gliding, soaring.

A plastic cup skids and rolls down the street.

Joining the bag.

A car skids down the road,

Its fumes and gases choking and destroying the fresh air.

Rubbish, and fumes and plastic,

They are masking the beauty of our world.

Yet all of these things, plastic and rubbish,

Is this what our beautiful world has come to?

Not a soul in sight yet rubbish floating on the crisp autumn gust?

Who has created this?

Who has wreaked havoc on our world?

Us.

Who are the only people who can stop this?

Us.

So that’s what we’re going to do.

Make a change by Maryam T, Year 7 LGGS

I look around me in the park
Where me and my friends played in the dark
Many trees have now disappeared
And the healthy grass now in tears.

Forests are where animals can breed
Trees are all gone because of greed,
Shame on you look what you’ve done
No homes for those who are not far from gone.

There is nothing left for MY future
You’ve had YOURS
Now what about mine?
A problem rising, many say it’s fine
No one realises that this is a crime.

Nothing is left but the starving monkeys
The drowning polar bears
The subtle waves are now a wreck
Adorned with many bits and bobs
That kill the animals one by one.
What will we do when there are no greets
From every animal that we wish to see
When it’s gone its gone, no turning back
Don’t be sad when nothing’s left
Make an action do the best
So, what will YOU do to beat the rest?

Changes by Marley L, Year 7 LGGS

Childhood memories ringing in our ears
Where we had little to none, rational fears
When we feared the “monsters” under our beds
Now many real fears ring in our heads
Pollution taking flight
Many innocent people fighting the fight
Nothing will change if we don’t unite
We must accept the dangerous creatures of the night
The chances that we take, shining bright
Don’t live in spite, for only we can make this right!

Online Environment by Lola C, Year 8 LGGS

Ping, there it goes again
That never-ending ring.
The Online environment is the place you need to be,
But once your there you have way to leave.
Your stuck, possibly for life
But ill let you decide…
Social media has change us all.
Likes, comments, follows
Are what we all want the most
But losing our social status
Now that’s something that scares us with an extra dose.
Is this really what our life has become?
Stop, take a minute before you press done.

Environment Poem by Liv J, Year 7 LGGS

We all live in this world, hand in hand or far apart,
But in good old England, all of us are close at heart.

Changing winds and shifting tides,
Feet on the streets getting into their stride.
Birthday cakes and shopping sprees,
Having picnics under the trees.

Plastic bags fly through the air,
Mother Nature cries in despair.
If we don’t act sure and fast,
Humanity will be a thing of the past.

So here we are upon the hill,
Flags in hands and voices shrill
Cousins, Family, all our friends,
On our decisions the world depends.

Stop polluting, stop the wars,
Clear the plastic from our shores.
Leave the forests, let them grow,
Let the turtles swim below.

The choice is ours, the time is here,
The world is dying, it is clear,
We must make changes, you and me,
The world is our community…

Environment poem by Lily A, Year 8 LGGS

My environment is my phone!

All my apps and I live in one big neighbourhood!
My two next door neighbours are TikTok and Snapchat,
I can spend hours on end with them and not get bored
They are my favourites on the street!

Across the road is Twitter and WhatsApp,
I don’t really like them
But I still put up with them,
Sometimes they can be fine

Up the street is Spotify, Instagram and YouTube
I try to keep in contact with them as much as I can,
Sometimes that can be tough
But when we are together it’s always a blast

Down the road is BeReal
She’s new to the neighbourhood,
Only moved in a few months ago
But she’s full of surprises
At the top of the street there’s iMessages and Facetime
They’re always together,
Rarely seen apart
But they make an amazing duo

I think my environment’s quite cool!
There’re obviously more apps in the neighbourhood,
I’m just not close to them or not as close as I used to be
But they are all still amazing!

Stargazing by Laura D, Year 9 LGGS

Sometimes when I can’t sleep,
I open the window
and dangle my legs out above the roof and gaze upon the stars
Twinkling, twinkling in the distance
Orion’s Belt, The Big Dipper, peeking out from the inky blackness,
The streetlights blinking away along the empty streets
I can pretend I’m the only person left on Earth,
Or I can go out even further, to the other stars, further, to the planets where I’d be just a speck
Even further out and I’d be gone, out of the Milky Way
And no one would ever see me against all the other universes spinning around, yet never colliding in their own separate menageries, lost in their own lives,

In quiet desperation.
