Nature for its nourishing roles has assumed the role of ‘mother’ for each and every living organism. However, humans have tarnished it and marred its beauties to an irrecoverable extent. This havoc has been played with the Earth in the name of material growth and industrial progress without implementing any compensatory alternatives.The present paper aims at interpreting the poem “Tears of Nature” so as to describe how the poet is emphasizing the gravity of the ecological situation. Drawing on the ecological strands of Ecocritical theory and employing the basic assumptions of Ecocriticism as theoretical framework, this study attempts to bring to the limelight the ecological concerns and how they are covertly and overtly voiced by the poet through this literary piece. The finding of the study suggests that environmental problem particularly global warming is one of the gravest concerns for whole humanity which is too alarming to be ignored.
