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.

  4. 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,

    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.

    Shimmering lakes of silvery ice
    welcomes skaters' scarring slice.

    The crunching snow beneath my feet
    Breaks the silence of the winter eve.

  13. 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.
