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.

    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.

    The Harshness Of Winter

    Winter's sleep so close to death,
    piercing with his arctic breath.

  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,

    Brrrr, I can feel the chill from here in Australia. Love it. Great stuff.

  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. No Songs In Winter

    The sky is gray as gray may be,
    There is no bird upon the bough,
    There is no leaf on vine or tree.

  10. The Hunt For The Northern Lights

    • By Lesley Elaine Greenwood
    • 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?

    The Harsh Reality Of Winter

    Roses and lilies, all covered in white.
    An image of beauty this winter night.
    The first snow is breathtaking to behold.
    The end of fall and the beginning of cold.

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

  12. Winter Warmth

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

  13. February Twilight

    I stood beside a hill
    Smooth with new-laid snow,
    A single star looked out
    From the cold evening glow.
