Excuse my spelling of similes in that last post! Doh!
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.
Here are some.
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.
