The Snowman- Submitted by Patrisha

Roll the snow into some balls.
Make a snowman, oh so tall.
Place a hat upon his head.
Give him buttons that are red.
Use some coal to make his eyes.
You can do it if you try!
Next, he needs a carrot nose.
Where will we get one of those?
Make a mouth and he'll be done.
Making snowmen is such fun!

Was not the right mitten,
For it was colored red.

I found a mitten Just right for a kitten
Under my father's pillow.
But, alas, the mitten
Was not the right mitten,
For it was colored yellow.

I found a mitten
Just right for a kitten
On the hand of my brother's toy clown.
But, alas, the mitten
Was not the right mitten,
For it was colored brown.

I found a mitten
Just right for a kitten
Under the laundry so clean.
But, alas, the mitten
Was not the right mitten,
For it was colored green.

I found a mitten
Just right for a kitten
Inside a grocery sack.
But, alas, the mitten
Was not the right mitten,
For it was colored black.

I found a mitten
Just right for a kitten
Inside my favorite shoe.
And this time the mitten
Was just the right mitten,
For it was colored blue!

The Snow Folks- Submitted by Lisa in VA

I look out the window,
And I see a place
That's covered all over
With white, frosted lace.

This place once had colors,
But it changed overnight.
And now it's a
Glistening, magical white!

I wonder who lives
In a place where I'd freeze,
If I didn't wear sweaters
And boots to my knees.

These folk must be snow
From their heads to their toes!
For I'd never be happy
With frost on my nose.

The folks who live here
Just love to be out
In the cold, wintry drifts
As the snow swirls about.

They're happy in blizzards.
They smile through a storm.
They laugh when it freezes,
But they cry when it's warm!

I rolled a snowball big as could be
One winter day in the morning.

I made another one, smaller you see,
One winter day, one winter day.
I made another one, smaller you see,
One winter day in the morning.

I rolled one more; now I had three
One winter day, one winter day.
And stacked them up as quick as could be
One winter day in the morning.

One winter day, one winter day.
I gave him a mouth. He said, "Hi!" to me
One winter day in the morning.

Standing in the cold wind,
Freezing all night.

And make him feel better,
But Mommy says he likesv This chilly weather.

Winter Song- Submitted by Sherry

The day is cloudy and the wind is bold.
Dress up warmly, you mustn't get cold!
Put on your coat and zip it up tight,
put on your left boot, put on your right.
Put on your scarf and put on your hat,
put on your mittens and clap-clap-clap!
Go outside and play and play.
Come in again, and then we'll say-
Take off your coat that was zipped up tight,
take off your left boot, take off your right.
Take off your scarf, take off your hat,
take off your mittens, and then take a nap!

Let's Celebrate The Season- Submitted by Sherry

by Jean Warren
Tune: "Jingle Bells"

Let's celebrate the season
It is a brand new year.
January's come
Let's sing out loud and clear.

Time to blow your horn.
Time to ring your bell.
Don't you love winter time.
It really is quite swell.

Wooley clothes, frozen toes
Snow pals all around.
What a lovely time of year
With snow upon the ground.

Frozen ponds, angle lawns,
Skating we will go.
Then we'll ride upon our sleds
Down the hills of snow

Miles of snow piles can be seen.

A Winter Surprise- Submitted by Sherry

I woke up from a cold, dark night,
To see a world of sparkling white.
