Winter Morning


Today I wanted to offer a poem. I love poetry and hope to feature more poems from time to time. So here's a fun poem to share with your kids this winter!

Winter Morning

Winter is the king of showmen,
Turning tree stumps into snowmen
And houses into birthday cakes
And spreading sugar over the lakes.
Smooth and clean and frost white
The world looks good enough to bite.
That's the season to be young,
Catching snowflakes on your tongue.

Snow is snowy when its snowing,
I'm sorry it's slushy when it's going.

-Ogden Nash
