Groundhog Day in Pennsylvania

Groundhog Day in Pennsylvania

 

 

Crowds gathered, wearing puffy jackets,

wooly hats – braving snowfall to

await the great prediction

Silence fell as night waned

and light streaked the horizon

A collective prayer rose up for an end to winter’s icy grip –

a prayer there would be no shadow

  1. I only know about Groundhog Day from the film, Candy, so it was with great interest that I read your quadrille, which painted a clear picture in my mind of what it might be like, to be one of the crowd waiting for the lack of shadow.
