With winter beginning in a few days, I thought this might be a good time to write a seasonal poem. For your poem this week, focus on any aspect of winter or several aspects, and work on using good, solid imagery. Think about things unique to the season, and think about what particular light winter offers us.
Before beginning, read the following poems to get some ideas of places your winter poems might lead you.
“A Winter Without Snow” by J. D. McClatchy
“Approach of Winter” by Willian Carlos Williams
“An Old Man’s Winter Night” by Robert Frost
“Winter Distances” by Fanny Howe
“Winter Trees” by William Carlos Williams
“Return to Winter” by Elaine Terranova
“Those Winter Sundays” by Robert Hayden
