Seasonal Poems Main Poetry Index

They shivered in the freezing cold

The day that winter took its hold.

     Those chilly winds blew from the north

     And sent their heavy snow clouds forth.


They drifted over woods and hills.

The winds sent out their icy chills -

     And in the morning, spread with snow

    The woods and pastures seemed to glow.


For in the night, from far on high,

The snow had drifted from the sky

     And snowflakes coated fields about

     Where children now can sledge and shout.


The snowmen soon were quickly made

As well-wrapped children laughed and played.

     They soon forgot the freezing cold,

      The day that winter took its hold.
