Groundhog Day

by Lilian Moore

Groundhog sleeps
All winter
Snug in his fur,
Dreams
Green dreams of
Grassy shoots,
Of nicely newly nibbly
Roots-
Ah, he starts to
Stir.
With drowsy
Stare
Looks from his burrow
Out on fields of
Snow.
What’s there!
Oh no.
His shadow. Oh,
How sad!
Six more
Wintry
Weeks
To go.

Groundhog Day

by Sharon Siegelman

The groundhog is an animal
Whose home is underground.
On Groundhog Day he goes outside
To have a look around.

He does not have a calendar.
He does not have a clue.
But on February second
He just knows what to do.

A groundhog must be ready
To do his job each year.
Please tell me, Mr. Groundhog,
Do you think spring is near?

Groundhog Day

Little groundhog down below
Underneath the wintry snow
Come on out and tell us true
Is Spring coming?
Is Winter through?
