Winter Poems for the Young and Young at Heart

As the days grow shorter and the nights grow longer, we find ourselves in the thick of winter. For some, this is a time to curl up by the fire with a hot cup of cocoa. For others, it’s a time to hit the slopes and enjoy the snow. And for those who are young at heart, it’s a time to celebrate with some fun winter poems! Enjoy the children’s poems about winter.

“Snowflakes” by Emily Dickinson

Snowflakes, Snowflakes,
Dancing in the air;
Falling on the ground,
Melting everywhere.
Snowflakes, Snowflakes,
Pure as can be;
Created by nature,
A work of art, you see.

“Winter Wonderland” by Felix Bernard and Richard B. Smith
Sleigh bells ring, are you listening?
In the lane, snow is glistening.
A beautiful sight, we’re happy tonight,
Walking in a winter wonderland.

Gone away is the bluebird,
Here to stay is a new bird.
He sings a love song, as we go along,
Walking in a winter wonderland.

In the meadow we can build a snowman,
Then pretend that he is Parson Brown.
He’ll say: Are you married?
We’ll say: No man, But you can do the job when you’re in town.
Later on, we’ll conspire As we dream by the fire
To face unafraid
The plans that we’ve made
Walking in a winter wonderland.
Wishing you a very Merry Christmas! May your holiday season be merry and bright!

“The First Noel” by Traditional The first Noel the angels did say
Was to certain poor shepherds in fields as they lay;
In fields where they lay keeping their sheep
On a cold winter’s night that was so deep.
Noel Noel Noel Noel Born is the King of Israel!
They looked up and saw a star Shining in the East beyond them far
And to the earth it gave great light
And so it continued both day and night.
Noel Noel Noel Noel Born is the King of Israel!
And by the light of that same star
Three Wise Men came from country far
To seek for a King was their intent
And to follow its shining ray
They did ascend Mount Calvary’s height
And there upon His blessed breast
Their treasure and themselves they did lay;
For all mankind He was slain All for Adam’s sinful stain.
Noel Noel Noel Noel Born is the King of Israel!

“Deck The Halls” by Traditional Deck
The Halls with boughs of holly Fa la la la la la la la la
‘Tis The Season To Be Jolly Fa la la la la la la lala
Don we now our gay apparel Fa la la etcetera
Blah blah blah yadda yadda yadda You get the idea…Merry Christmas!!!”)

Whether you’re young or young at heart, these poems are sure to put you in the holiday spirit!
So bundle up, grab some hot cocoa (or eggnog), and enjoy!
Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
