  1. Winter
    by L. Olson

    Winter is for skiing
    And riding in a sleigh;
    Winter is for snow men;
    Winter is for play.

    Winter is for ice skating;
    Winter is for me.
    Winter will be fun, I know!
    You just wait and see.

  2. The first snowfall is enjoyed by kids and adults. It is a beautiful scene!

  3. The First Snowfall
    by James Russell Lowell

    The snow had begun in the gloaming,
    And busily all the night
    Had been heaping field and highway
    With a silence deep and white.

    Every pine and fir and hemlock
    Wore ermine too dear for an earl.
    And the poorest twig on the elm tree
    Was ridged inch deep with pearl.

  4. Snowflakes are amazing, no two are the same!

  5. Snowflakes
    by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

    Out of the bosom of the air;
    Out of the cloud folds of her garments shaken;
    Over the woodlands brown and bare,
    Over the harvest fields forsaken,
    Silent and soft and slow
    Descends the snow.

  6. Goldenrod
    by Frank Dempster Sherman

    Spring is the morning of the year,
    And summer is the noontide bright;
    The autumn is the evening clear
    That comes before the winter^s night.

    And in the evening, everywhere
    Along the roadside, up and down,
    I see the golden torches flare
    Like lighted street-lamps in the town.

    I think the butterfly and bee.
    From distant meadows coming back.
    Are quite contented when they see
    These lamps along the homeward track.

    But those who stay too late get lost;
    For when the darkness falls about,
    Down every lighted street the Frost
    Will go and put the torches out!

  7. What child does not love tobogganing?  So much fun! And when you get the adults on the toboggan you will find childhood memories and fun comes back to them!

  8. Tobogganing Song
    Poet: John Imrie

    'Tis "Hurrah! hurrah!" and away they go,
    Like an avalanche o'er the crispy snow!
    With a rush and a bound they clear the ground,
    While the snow, like spray, dashes all around!
    They think not of death.
    Yet they hold their breath, -

    Now in a hollow! - now cresting a hill! -
    There, guiding the craft to prevent "a spill! "
    See! the fresh warm blood to their faces rush.
    As they peep from their robes with roses' blush!
    In the clear moonlight,
    What a happy sight,-

    As the maiden clings with a tender fear
    To the kind loving arm that holds her near!
    Through the clear cold air of the frosty night
    The twinkling stars seem to dance with delight!
    With speed of the wind -
    Leaving all behind -

    They rush to the plain with a shout of glee.
    As merry and happy as hearts could be!

  9. Winter-Time
    Poet: Robert Louis Stevenson

    Late lies the wintry sun a-bed,
    A frosty, fiery sleepy-head;
    Blinks but an hour or two; and then,
    A blood-red orange, sets again.

    Before the stars have left the skies,
    At morning in the dark I rise;
    And shivering in my nakedness,
    By the cold candle, bathe and dress.

    Close by the jolly fire I sit
    To warm my frozen bones a bit;
    Or with a reindeer-sled, explore
    The colder countries round the door.

    When to go out, my nurse doth wrap
    Me in my comforter and cap:
    The cold wind bums my face, and blows
    Its frosty pepper up my nose.

    Black are my steps on silver sod;
    Thick blows my frosty breath abroad;
    And tree and hoase, and hill and lake,
    Are frosted like a wedding-cake.
