No Shadow This Spring
Early Spring I did recall that little groundhog made his call
but record snow and freezing cold and icy winds that bellow
Testify no weather predictor is a groundhog detector
He usually does see his shadow near and winter stretches in the year
but his shadow he did not see meant an early spring was to be
But the sly little rodent fooled us all for winter stayed without a thaw
I was hoping for a sunny spring weary of all frozen things
But six more weeks of winter stays his shadow is a big charade
that little groundhog's prediction untrue, time for some groundhog stew.
