Ground Hog Day

Ground Hog Day We know every year comes the day We see if our Winter will stay… The Ground Hog will show By shadow we’ll know If we can put snow gear away. If he sees his shadow at all Then Winter will stay here on call… No shadow means great! Spring’s right at the gate! Let’s dance and go have us a ball! However I heard from good source Phil Ground Hog will have no remorse… He will not come out You better not pout If Springtime goes far off its course! © Sandra M.

Hi Adell, thank you so much for stopping by with your positive comment and best wishes for the contest. It was judged today, and unfortunately this poem did not make the winner's list. But I do appreciate your support! Sandra

Hi Sandra, Limericks are tricky and hard to do in my estimation. You have 3 fine ones here. They look like they are right on course for a victory. Good luck in the contest. Earl

Thanks, Casarah, for your sweet comment. When it comes to weather, it is what is...ground hog or not! But, at least the days are getting longer here in the North East! Hugs, Sandra
