Oh two-oh two-two oh -two oh
Punxutawney Phil’s big thing,
the halfway point of winter days
progressing to the coming spring.
A one time numeric happening
comes on this groundhog day.
Front to back, or back to front
reads the same both either way.
Punxutawney Phil comes out,
his shadow on his mind.
He’ll look in all directions,
doesn’t know what he will find.
Some people call him Doctor Phil,
shadow spotting his degree.
If there is none, for him to spot,
an early spring for you and me.
If there’s a shadow there to see,
no clouds providing blocks,
spring will wait another week
until the Equinox.
Spring Equinox is twenty March
in the event you didn’t know.
The next season is summer
That’s just how the seasons go.
