  • 3 February (or, After The Groundhog’s Day)

    Slept in a bit
    Got up for brunch
    stayed in pjs
    ‘til well past lunch

    The crowds were gone
    peace had returned
    Time to relax
    a rest well earned

    Though once a year
    I’m glad it’s done
    I deal with it
    but it’s not fun

    The calendar
    says winter runs
    right to mid-March
    before spring’s suns

    But no, they had
    their little show
    and lured me from
    my warm burrow

    to tell them this
    I looked a fool
    as they made me
    a weather tool

    Well, now I get
    a short respite
    before I must
    get back to it

    My real job
    seeking the truth
    to answer that
    question from youth

    To take measure
    of how much wood
    that I could chuck
    because I could

    This could go on for a long time and that’s a good thing. Give us #3 4 5 Muttado. You’re warming up my #3 morning.

      Thanks, Bobby! I’m happy to have warmed your morning. I don’t know about a series, though.

    LOL! Yes indeed. Back out of the spotlight and to the daily grind - or gnaw, as situation warrants.

          Thanks, AtL! I liked how groundhog and woodchuck are the same animal, so Johntee's comment question made this bit of fun come to mind.

        I have become fascinated with your ground hog!
