Poem Spark Dec. 24 – Jan. 7 – Winter Poems


Greetings fellow poets!

As you may have guessed, the passing of winter and the start of a new year are on my mind. And it seems that I’m not the only one thinking of this; the front page of Poets.org has the following banner:

Poems for Christmas

Poems for Winter

Poems for New Years

If you click on any of those links, it brings you to a plethora of choices. I can’t pick all my favorites; there are so many holiday poems from which to choose. Robert Frost or Wallace Stevens? Tennyson or Hardy? The possibilities are endless.

For this spark, you have a choice: pick your favorite winter/holiday/new years poem and post the title and a link, or write your own poem in celebration (or dismay) of the season.

Have fun and Happy Holidays!

PS-I’ve decided: my favorite is Wallace Stevens’ The Snow Man. Brilliant poem!
