Winter Poems

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.

    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.

    Wintertime Fun

    Borrowed scarf, stolen carrot and mittens,
    frostbitten fingers determined to finish,
    eyes were a button and a bottle cap squished in.
    Mothers called but no one listened -

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

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

    Roses and lilies, all covered in white.
    An image of beauty this winter night.

  12. 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,

    Crisply the bright snow whispered,
    Crunching beneath our feet;
