Poems about the Beauty of Winter

Winter is the season when the whole world seems to go to sleep. The weather is cold, the ground is hard, and the trees and plants seem to be dead. Since there is little else to do, it is a time that is conducive to working hard. There isn't much else to do, and the weather seems to suggest that we must buckle down and do the things that we have been avoiding. This is not a bad thing. 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. 1. Winter's Artist

    • By Suzanne Bates
    • Published by Family Friend Poems February 2017 with permission of the Author.

    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.

    Awesome poetry!!!
    You paint a picture so extremely grand
    of a magical winter wonderland
    Though Jack Frost may bite fingers, nose and toes,
    his art compares to Michelangelo's.

  3. 2. Winter's Embrace

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

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

    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.

  10. 8. Birches

    Famous Poem

    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.

    Snow is falling, as quiet as a mouse;
    On people and on dogs, and on our house.
