    Here it is again:

    "Winter Morning Poem" by Ogden Nash
    Winter is the king of showmen
    Turning tree stumps into snow men
    And houses into birthday cakes
    And spreading sugar over lakes
    Smooth and clean and frosty white
    The world looks good enough to bite
    That's the season to be young
    Catching snowflakes on your tongue
    Snow is snowy when it's snowing
    I'm sorry it's slushy when it's going

    Try typing 'winter poems for children' into google and I bet it will come up with some.

    Always a good idea when on the lookout for something useful, I've found.

    Hello Smithy - If you simply Google JOSIE'S POEMS you'll come to a huge website containing many winter poems and many more - 1,200 new poems spread over five large websites. The poem "As White as This Wintry Scene" is a simile poem and you'll see there is a lot of alliteration etc etc

    As wild as the wind whistling over the moors;

    As loud as the creaks of the windows and doors;

    As soft as the rain that patters on glass

    And splashes cool droplets on hedges and grass. etc etc

    You can also buy books containing lots of winter poems on this website too and there is a listening page where your children can hear the poems. I hope this helps.

    Hi, not necessarily winter themed poems but there is a good Y4 poetry unit from www.ksresources.co.uk , which looks at performance poetry. Hope that helps.
