The Groundhog Was Wrong

I pulled out my latest shipment of seeds and dreamed of spring

I can't see the garden from the window I normally watch it grow.

It's also a good thing that all of the wood we need for
this winter is already in the shed.

Bill had made an effort to keep up with it all with the tractor,
each week pushing back the banks to make room for more.

Yet, with all of the snow we continue to have here in Rowe I

Even when you don't think she can see.

But she really comes into her own when the snow shovel comes
out as you can see.

Then she becomes an acrobat.
