Poems about the Beauty of Winter

Since there is little else to do, it is a time that is conducive to working hard.

It can very satisfying to work hard and be creative. Creativity is part of our makeup. Without a purpose in our lives, depression would quickly set in.

  1. An English Winter's Day

    Morning Walk In Winter

    On those cold and frosty winter's mornings when the grass crunches beneath your feet,
    and you're wrapped up in layers, hats and scarves, as is everyone else you meet

    When each time you exhale a breath of steam quickly disappears into the chilled air,

    Transformation Of Earth Into A Winter Wonderland

    Shimmering lakes of silvery ice
    welcomes skaters' scarring slice.
    Hills adorned in lacy white
    watch children sleigh into the night.

  6. Birches

    When I see birches bend to left and right
    Across the lines of straighter darker trees,
    I like to think some boy's been swinging them.
    But swinging doesn't bend them down to stay

  7. A Winter Blue Jay

    Crisply the bright snow whispered,
    Crunching beneath our feet;
    Behind us as we walked along the parkway,
    Our shadows danced,

  8. Winter's Artist

    • By Suzanne Bates
    • Published: February 2017
    Poem On The Beauty Of Winter And Snow

    An awesome scene the artist paints, expert and deft his hand.
    Brush strokes swift, he draws with ease, a winter wonderland.
    Landscape sketched from memory, heavens and land entwine
    Rapidly the scene is set, exquisitely divine.

    • Published: May 2008

    Snowy white fox of the Arctic,
    was it your brush-like tail
    that sprayed snow, like crystal sparks,
    adorning the dark sky with a shimmering veil?

    Piles of snow beneath my boots
    chilly winds blowing everywhere
    snow keeps mounting on the posts

  13. Images In A Moment Of Time

    • By Ryan Richard Nych
    • Published: January 2018

    Bleak winter sunset with sky of lavender.
    Winter pears cling like dead, crinkled ornaments
    from gnarled branches,
    unwilling to let summer go from arthritic grip.
