What Is a Good Snowflake Poem?

A good snowflake poem is "Snow-flakes" by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. The poem describes the falling of snowflakes as a depressing event, drawing a link between "the troubled heart" and "the troubled sky" that the snow is coming from; the personified sky is revealing its grief and despair through the snow.

Three good Robert Frost poems about snow are "Dust of Snow," "Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening" and "A Winter Eden." Other poems about snow include Miguel Hernandez's "The Soldier and the Snow," Charles Tomlinson's "Snow Signs," Heid E. Erdrich's "Last Snow" and Kenneth Patchen's "The Snow Is Deep on the Ground."
