5+ Interesting Poems About Dams: Building With Nature

Some say that dams are symbols of progress, while others see them as displays of engineering ingenuity. But whether we view them as facilitators of growth or testament to human innovation, one thing is for sure: dams always provoke strong reactions in those who encounter them. 

This anthology collects poems about dams – both positive and negative perspectives – to provide a more well-rounded understanding of this complex topic. 

After all, dams are more than just utilitarian objects – they’re pieces of history, embodiments of our changing relationship with nature, and reflections on the ever-evolving concept of progress. Enjoy!


Dams are a source of beauty and power, as well as destruction. They can provide security and 

shelter, but they can also cause disaster. They represent both the best and worst of human innovation. 

The needs of people and nature must be balanced to create a successful dam. This balance is not always easy to achieve, and the results can be disastrous. 

Dams are symbols of human progress and strength, as well as our ability to destroy our environment. They are monuments to what we can achieve and what we risk losing.
