List Of Snow Poems For Kids

  1. Snowball
  2. 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 pyjamas,

    And a pillow for its head.

    Then last night, it ran away.

    But first, it wet the bed!

  3. The First Sleigh-Ride
  4. By Evaleen Stein

    O happy time of fleecy rime

    And falling flakes, and O

    The glad surprise in the baby eyes

    That never saw the snow!

    Down shining ways the flying sleighs

    Go jingling by, and see!

    Beside the gate, the horses wait

    And neigh for you and me!

  5. Ice Can Scream
  6. By Jane Yolen

    Ice Can Scream Ice can scream,

    Ice can shout:

    Winter in And autumn out.

    5 Ice can shout, Ice can call,

    Signalling The end of fall.

    Ice can call,

    10 Ice can yell Secrets no one Else can tell.

    Ice can yell, Ice can howl,

    15 Naming winter’s Weather foul.

    Ice can howl, Ice can wail,

    Counting up 20 Each storm and gale.

    Ice can wail,

    Ice can shriek Till the land Is winter-bleak.

    25 Ice can shriek,

    Ice can scream Straight across The autumn dream.

    Ice can scream,

    30 Ice can shout: Winter in And autumn out.

  7. Icicle Decorations
  8. By Michele Meleen

    Inch by inch

    Circling down

    Icicles form

    Crystal cones

    Lavishly decorating

    Every home

  9. Snow Kisses
  10. 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.

  11. Chubby Snowman
  12. By Unknown

    There was a chubby snowman

    And he had a carrot nose

    (put fist to nose like carrot)

    Along came a bunny

    (2 fingers up for ears)

    And what do you suppose

    (hands on hips)

    The hungry little bunny

    (rub tummy)

    Was looking for his lunch

    (hand to forehead, looking)

    He grabbed that snowman’s carrot nose


    (Pretend to eat carrot)

  13. Winter
  14. By Dorothy Aldis

    The street cars are

    Like frosted cakes—

    All covered up

    With cold snowflakes.

    The horses’ hoofs

    Scrunch on the street;

    Their eyelashes

    Are white with sleet.

    And everywhere

    The people go—

    With faces TICKLED

    By the snow

  15. Five Little Snowflakes
  16. By Leanne Guenther

    One little snowflake with nothing to do.

    Along came another and

    Then there were two.

    Two little snowflakes laughing with me.

    Along came another, and

    Then there were three.

    Three little snowflakes looking for some more.

    Along came another, and

    Then there were four.

    Four little snowflakes dancing a jive.

    Along came another, and

    Then there were five.

    Five little snowflakes having so much fun.

    Out came the sun, and

    Then there were none!

  17. Winter, Winter
  18. By Nicolette Lennert

    Winter, winter

    Cold and ice

    A mug of hot chocolate 

    would be nice

    Winter, winter

    Long dark nights

    Kids bundle up

    For snowball fights

  19. There Was an Old Sled
  20. By Michele Meleen

    There was an old sled who was ready to ride,

    I don’t know why it couldn’t slide.

    There was a snowy hill sitting under the slide

    it glistened and gleamed and begged for a ride.

    There was a small boy standing on the hill

    who wanted to slide, but stood quite still.

    When the moment was right,

    The boy sat on the sled.

    He pushed off the hill and down they went

    The boy and the sled began to slide

    on their first and best snowy hill ride.

  21. Snow Day!
  22. By Caryn Yacowitz

    It happened while we were all asleep,

    Snow had fallen—six feet deep.

    The temperature was ten below.

    All the roads were blocked with snow.

    “No school today,” the radio said.

    “Stay at home in your cozy bed.”

    So I quickly dressed

    And jumped on my sled!

  23. Snowflakes
  24. By Sabina Laura

    I caught snowflakes

    on my fingertips

    but they melted

    to my dismay.

    I could not hold on

    to something

    that did not want

    to stay.
