1. 'Snow' by Louis Macneice
An obvious choice, I know, but the snow poem all other snow poems now have to nod in the direction of.
2. 'History' by Paul Muldoon
Okay, getting off topic already - but this surely has to be the best response to Mcneice?
3. 'Snow' by David Briggs
A poem about words for snow, and how the wonder is as much in the words as in the snow.
4. 'Snow-Flakes' by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Snow as 'the poem of the air'.
5. 'Snow Melting' by Gjertrud Schnackenberg
Snow melts to reveal a world without love.
6. 'Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening' by Robert Frost
One of the best-known poems by any American poet. And the Fozzie Bear rendition is pretty good, too.
7. 'The Buck in the Snow' by Edna St. Vincent Millay
An uncanny, almost symbolist poem - frustrated desire and failed communication.
8. 'Slush' by Alan Buckley
A poem about the loss of growing up that also tackles the theme of climate change in a subtle and personal way.
9. 'Snow Water' by Michael Longley
Imagine drinking the purity of snow.
10. 'Snow and Snow' by Ted Hughes
The sensuality of snow in Hughes' transformative imagination.
