THE WOODCHUCK’S PORTRAIT.
Sit still, Mr. Woodchuck,
As still as can be,
Till the picture is finished
And then you shall see.
It is not every woodchuck
Who has such a chance
As this set before him,
His worth to enhance.

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.
