Maybe one could look to the sun
and count the sunspots on its face.
Predicting spring could simply be
perusing part of outer space.
The surface of the sun is hot,
with sunspots very hot as well.
But they are dark because they’re not
as scorching as surrounding hell.
Perhaps spring's coming could be known
by spots of varied shape and size.
Then doing spot analysis
might tell us when spring would arise.
The Gobbler’s Knob groundhog of note
relies on sun to do his thing.
The sunlight makes a shadow so
Phil promises an early spring.
Those sunspots pop up on the sun
like acne on a teenage cheek.
It would be cool if they were signs-
prognosticators, so to speak.
I’d like to see the spots align
such that the spring would not be shy.
Then gladly would I take the time
to look for spring up in the sky.
