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.
