Happy Belated Groundhog Day


By Nancy Wayman Deutsch

Consider groundhog, woodchuck, marmot
Not most people's favorite varmit
Yet famed throughout the Keystone State
For weather change prognosticate

The groundhog's dressed in frosted fur
It's hard to tell if he's a her
Like rodents, please do not forget
With aggressive manner not a pet

Some call the critter whistle pig
As ground squirrels go he's sort of big
An herbivore, he dines on grubs
Grasses, snails, and sometimes bugs

The groundhog smiles a toothy grin
As he digs a den and burrows in
Like bears, this marmot hibernates
When shadow's seen and Spring comes late.

TTFN my little Bloggers!
