Ground Hog Day


Each February 2ND is... That special Ground Hog Day...
When woodchucks scurry back to bed... Or stay outside and play
... They break the ground and look around... With curiosity
... And spring is here again unless... Their shadows they can
see... But winter still must cast... Their cold on day
and night... It is an old tradition and... Some people watch
each year... To figure out the weather when... The wood-
chucks reappear... The ground hog heralds spring again... Or
it predicts more snow...And maybe you believe it but...It
isn't really so.
