Simple Winter Poems For Kids

Snowflake on my Tongue

By Michele Meleen

Snowflake on my tongue
Ice cold then warm and melting
Winter’s special treat


By Shel Silverstein

I made myself a snowball,
as perfect as could be.

I thought I’d keep it as a pet,
and let it sleep with me.

I made it some pajamas,
And a pillow for its head.

Then last night, it ran away.
But first, it wet the bed.

Simple Winter Poems For Kids To Learn By Heart - Dust of Snow By Robert Frost

Dust of Snow

By Robert Frost

The way a crow
Shook down on me
The dust of snow
From a hemlock tree

Has given my heart
A change of mood
And saved some part
Of a day I had rued.

Snow Kisses

Excerpt from ‘Suzie Bitner Was Afraid of the Drain’ by Barbara Vance

If you go out when it’s snowing
And look up at the sky,
You’ll feel lots of icy kisses
As the snowflakes flutter by.

Dragon Smoke

By Lilian Moore

Breathe and blow
white clouds
with every puff.

It’s cold today,
cold enough
to see your breath.

Breathe dragon smoke

Simple Winter Poems For Kids To Learn By Heart - A Sledding Song By Norman C. Schlichter

A Sledding Song 

By Norman C. Schlichter

Sing a song of winter,
Of frosty clouds in air!
Sing a song of snowflakes
Falling everywhere.

Sing a song of winter!
Sing a song of sleds!
Sing a song of tumbling
Over heels and heads.

Up and down a hillside
When the moon is bright,
Sledding is a tiptop
Wintertime delight.


By Eunice Tietjens

The snow is soft,
and how it squashes!
“Galumph, galumph!”
go my galoshes.

Happy Winter!

I hope these simple winter poems help you and your children appreciate the unique beauty of this season.
