Snow Poetry

We’ve been working on different ways to revise poems in second grade.  Our staff developer has given us some ideas, and this week she shared her poem, Out the Window, and modeled how she could revise it four or five different ways.

Today I’ll try my own Out the Window poem and then see if I can try it a few different ways over the next few entries.

Out the Window

It’s March.

Almost spring.

The robins should be arriving soon.

The crocus and daffodil should be pushing through the hard dirt.

But not today.

Today I wake to the beautiful silence of snow.

I look out the window

onto the big white blanket covering the yard

tree branches with white pencil lines across each limb.

It’s March.

Almost Spring.

But not quite yet.

Winter reminds us of her power and beauty.

  1. Love this – Out the window poetry… Haven’t done that in a while… great format. and I love your sense of March here… it’s what I see when I look out my window too… and I’m ready for spring!

  2. Love it! I need to try my hand at poetry. My 8 year old read your poem to me and ran to look out our window. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Beautiful! “silence of snow” and “winter reminds us of her power and beauty” — really cool stuff! Way to be inspired and take action!! Thanks for sharing!
