Groundhogs slumber, gather strength
for their moment in the sun.
Senators sit and debate
whether aught needs to be done.
Parents rise and bathe and dress;
they have errands they must run.
Children play and laugh and jest,
heedless of all the rest,
“Saturdays are the best!”,
focus solely on their fun.
One thought on “Enter February”
Perhaps it is right to focus on children and try to push back on these other preoccupations.
