2. Acrostic Winter
Winter is cold but wonderful,
Icy but peaceful.
Noses are always dripping and red,
The days are short as the nights have to come yet.
Every year this season brings a lot of fun and frolic,
Readily we always wait for it to come back again!
Whiteness and paleness abound
In this season of cold
Nevertheless smiles surround
The pine trees designed with gold
Embellishments all around
Rejoicing the holidays of old
By Anna Graziella Barreno

Will I ever see you again?
In the middle of the rain,
Neither of us seems to stay.
Those drops remind me of you
Even if I’m the only one in blue.
Reminisce, please, the word “us” baby
By Kim Derla
5. It’s Winter!
Winds stiff and cold nip at my nose
Icicles hang from rooftops and sparkle like jewels
Nightfall comes early and darkens the world
Trees bare and still wear coats of white snow
Eager children grab sleds and run up steep hills
Resting animals hibernate until spring breezes blow
By Third Grade Thinkers
Warm hot chocolate, as good as sweet honey
In this season, there is nothing but whiteness and cold
Nevertheless, children’s laughs fill the lonely air
The cold winter weather roars with it’s mighty wind
Every day comes by too quick, shorter than an hour
Reindeer are flying high in the dark night sky, along Santa
By Andrea Richards
7. Winter Acrostic Poem
While I do like the winter, and freezing cold toes,
I never like winters without snowy snows!
Nothing’s much better, than a drippy, red nose!
The season of short days, when trees have no clothes!
Every year winter comes and I sing,
Real cold, not like fall, or summer, or spring!
By Mr. R
Poems About Winter
With all of the different movie plots about winter and different elements to the season, there’s likely another million ways to write about the winter in poetry form as well.
General poetry with the winter theme is probably more on the moodier side, but acrostic is so surface level, it’s probably going to have more of the fun feelings about the season involved instead of the woes of the shorter days and lack of sunshine!
Have fun with poems about magical snowmen and ice princesses– it’s a cute time of year to have abundant imagination.
8. Winter Wonderland Of Fun
Waiting patiently for the snow to fall
Into thick fur coats and mittens we jump
Necks warm with colorful scarves and collars
Thick and fluffy are our blankets and sheets
Everybody snuggled close by the fireplace
Reaching for cups of freshly made hot chocolate
Watching intently out the window
Opening our eyes to a lovely scene
Nature is always at its very best this time of the year
Deer and rabbits run freely through the fields
Each one finding their own place to feed
Ravaging through plants and flowers
Life here seems like such a dream
Always brings a smile to everyone’s heart
Now that the snow is beginning to fall
Dive in and go for a ride on your sled
Open up that new set of skis you received
Freefall down the icy slopes and hillsides
Find a friend and enjoy the view with them
Up above the world so high you stand
Now and forever in this winter wonderland of fun
9. Poetry Lesson
Wind to snow to get to the sea
In the snow, the kids play
Near our house, a pyramid of snow grows
The earth sleeps in winter
Even on cold days, I like to play outside
Restful and peaceful, all the people go to sleep
Winter bringing snowstorms
Icicles forming in the edges of cars
sNow covering the whole pathway lane
Tractors clear the parking lot
strEet lights lose power
Roads become slippery
by Unknown Student

11. Daily Challenge
White fluffy snow all around
Ice skating is fun to do
Need to wear a hat and gloves
Trees have lost their leaves
Enjoying hot chocolate
Really cold outside
By St Ernans
12. It’s Elementary!
Wet and white when it snows
Icicles sometimes form
Not my favorite season
Temperatures are cold
Even snowmen bundle up!
Really early sunsets!
By Miss Ellen
Ice is freezing the garden outside
New changes of weather
Tubity’s Toy shop keeps children up all night long
Red noses, on children when they come inside
It’s snowing outside
Shoe boxes for children from far away lands
Happy times with your family
Everybody together watching “The Grinch” on the couch
Reindeers and Santa in the sky doing their practice run
Evenings getting darker, means Christmas is getting closer
What are your favorite winter memories?
I’ve lived in Texas my whole life so there aren’t too many cute winter things happening around here, it’s just a bitter wind. But I have spent a lot of time in winter in New York, and one of my favorite memories is eating pizza next to the Empire State Building with my best friend, and seeing the first snowfall of the season begin outside our window.
We paid the check and ran outside to stand under the New York snow, in a rare moment where the street was quiet, as we stood on the street under the iconic Empire State Building. Talk about a core winter memory.
Whatever memory makes winter feel magical and wonderful to you, think of that moment and try your own winter acrostic poem!
And as spring approaches, see check out some Easter acrostic poems!
