Poem by Karen Layman

Ode to Groundhog Day

Why is it
That on February 2nd each year
We strange humans
Go and look for groundhogs in their holes
To see if they have a shadow?
How do we know if they can see their shadow?
And who decided it was six more weeks anyways?
And what is the groundhog thinking?
"If there are humans outside my hole
There will be six more weeks of winter."
