Six Poetry of Nature Cards- Your choice 

Snail Mail lives and these beautiful, colorful, nature note cards make for gorgeous stationary!

Greeting Cards are high end, sturdy, and glossy, but only on the photo side. The inside is a traditional matte and easy to write upon.

And, being 5x7, they can be framed with ease, turning them into a gift along the way.

Every card will have its poem on the back, but the insides are blank. Cards will come with their envelopes in clear Mylar sleeves.

Thank you! Enjoy your visit and please feel free to contact me if you have questions.

Hello! Welcome to my shop. My name is Katharine Emlen and I am the writer / photographer behind The Poetry of Nature.

Nothing brings me greater joy than being outside in this beautiful world of ours. Nature, I find, provides the most wonderful canvas, no matter where you look. I have seen tremendous beauty in dying leaves, personalities hanging out in ditches, and remarkable compositions in the most unlikely of places.

Sometimes, I pretend I am an ant, because if I were an ant, those itty-bitty water drops would be pillows to rest upon, that blade of grass a slide, and the dew covered wheat, a jungle gym for play.

 I tend to get lost in my imagination and I allow nature be's not just three drops on a leaf, but a family of travelers, not just a twisted tendril, but a lover's embrace...

When I allow Nature to be sentient, I see all sorts of stories within her. They are the same as ours! Triumph, struggle, comfort, joy....I see it in the twist of a tendril, patterns in ice, the way the water drops sit on the curve of a leaf.

Usually, I stumble upon these stories. And when I do, I hear a poem in my head, so I include it with the image. This is why I call this my work, The Poetry of Nature. 

Thank you for stopping by!

Shop Policies

Thank you for your interest in The Poetry of Nature!


All of my photographs are printed to order using a professional photo lab. Because of this it can take up to 5 days of processing time before I can ship to you. So please allow 7-10 days from when you order until you receive your photo with poem.

Greeting cards will be shipped right away. :)


The poem will be included on a separate sheet of paper, allowing you to choose if it is part of your display. Although "Poetry Posters" are unique options as they pair the image and poem side by side. You can see what this looks like in the photos offered for each image.


If you are unhappy with your image I am happy to offer a refund once the photograph has been returned. I am also happy to exchange it for a different one of the same size, once the original has been returned. Returns and exchanges are accepted up to two weeks from reciept of order.


I do not yet offer Digital Downloads, but I am more than happy to ship without the sturdy board backing to save on weight. Please contact me if interested and I will work with you on the most economical way to get you your Poetry of Nature print.

Thank you!
