Hey, every Gnome, Spirit and Fay its Ground-Hog Day!

Illustration by M. T. Ross from A Year With the Fairies.  Ground-Hog Day.

“Ground-Hog Day.”

Now, listen to my proclamation,

Each Gnome, and Spirit, and Fay,

And mind no weather-man but me,

For this is Ground-Hog Day.

When Lady Spring my shadow sees

In fright she runs away,

But since my shadow I have hid,

Miss Spring will come to stay.

A Year With the Fairies.
