Winter's Wonder: Poems About the Magic of Snowflakes
Winter has very few redeeming qualities. Many animals find that the best thing to do is simply sleep through it. Studies show that human beings sleep more during the winter months as well. One of the few redeeming qualities of winter is snow. There are few things more magical than looking out the window from your house and discovering those first flurries gently falling to the ground.

I jump on to the toboggan,
landing behind my friend.
We ride down the hill,
the sled not lagging an inch
