Snowflake Snowflake

Snowflake, snowflake,
Shining in the sky.
Snowflake, snowflake,
Twirling as you go by.
Snowflake, snowflake,
You’re one of a kind.
Snowflake, snowflake,
Oh, I wish you were mine.

Snow Kisses

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.


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 some pajamas.
and a pillow for its head.
Then last night, it ran away.
But first, it wet the bed!

Ten Little Snowmen

One little, two little,
Three little snowmen.
Four little, five little,
six little snowmen.
Eight little, nine little,
Ten little snowmen
Playing at night.

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.

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

I’Am A Snowflake

I’m a snowflake.
I’m a snowflake.

In the air.
In the air.

Whirling, twirling, snowflake.
Whirling, twirling, snowflake.

Here and there.
Here and there.

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.

The First Snow

By Evaleen Stein

The snow! The snow! Whoop! Hooray! Ho! Ho!
Plunge in the deep drifts and toss it up so!
Rollick and roll in the feathery fleece
Plucked out of the breast of the marvelous geese
By the little old woman who lives in the sky,
Have you ever seen her? No, neither have I!

Winter Is Here

By Debbie T. Alsup

Sliding down a snow-covered hill,
The newest sled,
I love the feel.
On icy patches
I jerk and twist.
Winter’s finally here
I got my wish.
