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. When the snow builds up outside our houses it envelops us in a warm cocoon. The time has come to put on your warm slippers, a cozy blanket, and curl up with some hot chocolate.

    Famous Poem


    Whose woods these are I think I know.

    He will not see me stopping here
    To watch his woods fill up with snow.

    Superb, poetry as its best.

    We should count our blessings one by one,
    Every night and day, lest they be gone.

    The night sky is a dull grey white.
    An opaque dust sheet floats so light
    Upon the roofs and lamps and cars.
    It settles so softly like falling stars.

    The winter wood is like a strong old man,
    Grizzled, rugged, and gray,
    With long white locks tattered by many storms.

    Seeping through the blinds.

    To take a probing peek outside.

    Snow white fluff
    We've had enough
    Gracefully flowing
    While it's snowing
    Angry piles left by plows
    All of the horrays turn into growls!
