In honor of Groundhog Day, Selma (she’ll be seven in March) wrote a poem. (There was a 2-hour delay this morning because the folks in Maryland forget how to drive even if there’s too much talk of snow.). It also happens there’s a blogger’s silent poetry reading happening in honor of St Brigid’s day, so Selma and I thought we’d contribute her poem:

Spring is coming, I know it, I know it
Spring is coming, I know it, I know it
I know it, I know it
Spring is coming
The clouds are out
Spring is near
The groundhog will come out
Because his shadow isn’t here

    Good job, Selma!

    I have to remember to start Starmore’s gorgeous cabled St. Brigid sweater next year on her birthday!
