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. 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.

    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.

    Shimmering lakes of silvery ice
    welcomes skaters' scarring slice.

  6. 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,

  7. 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

  8. White Planet

    An Adventure On A Snowy Day

    Snow is falling, as quiet as a mouse;
    On people and on dogs, and on our house.
    A fluffy blanket now covers the street -
    The cars are white, and that is neat.

    Snowy white fox of the Arctic,
    was it your brush-like tail

    I live in Australia; we are experiencing devastating bush fires. Snow seems like a wonderland by sheer
    contrast. Lovely poem, well deserved.
