Winter anyone?

Winter is Poetry.....

Winter poems are a favourite search topic on the Internet.  Every year tens of thousands of searches for winter poems and snow poetry are launched.  How can you explain this high demand?  Perhaps because of the cold, frigid winters, the cold forces people indoors, seeking some explanation for it all by a warm, cozy fireplace  The most popular poem of all for winter is "Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening" by Robert Frost.  A rare video of him reading this poem is actually available to view on YouTube.

Here is the poem written down for you to enjoy:

Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening
by Robert Frost

Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village, though;
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow.

My little horse must think it queer
To stop without a farmhouse near
Between the woods and frozen lake
The darkest evening of the year.

He gives his harness bells a shake
To ask if there is some mistake.
The only other sound's the sweep
Of easy wind and downy flake.

The woods are lovely, dark and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.

    I am going to throw a challenge out to my readers.  If you have a winter poem or any kid's poem that you have written please submit it to me at "" and I will give it a peek and perhaps select some to publish here on my blog.  It will be fun to get some of your work out there so others can enjoy the fruits of your  poetic labor.  Always trying to create a forum where we can share our gifts and talents here.  In the subject line of the email just put Storywrap's poetry submission.  Thanks and hope to hear from you soon. Let's make this blog a space where creative minds meet and dance together. Have a great weekend everyone.
