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.

  1. Winter's Embrace

    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.

    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.

    Piles of snow beneath my boots
    chilly winds blowing everywhere

    on the windows and on the roads

    • 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?

    Enjoying The First Snowfall

    The snow slowly falling off the trees,
    The feel of the cold sharp breeze.
    The feel of the soft powdery snow,
    The sun going down with a bright glow.

    • By Cheyenne Marie Gillett

    Hating Cold But Loving Winter

    To be honest, I hate the cold; I freeze easily,
    But I love how the snow tickles my nose.
    I love how the trees are naked
    And the sky dresses them in white like a dress.

  13. 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
