Hear Ye!  Hear Ye!  Hear Ye!

Now, this Second Day of February, Two Thousand and Seventeen,
the One Hundred and Thirty-first Annual Trek
of the Punxsutawney Groundhog Club.

Punxsutawney Phil, the Seer of Seers,
Prognosticator of All Prognosticators,
was awakened from his burrow
to the cheers of his thousands of faithful followers.

In Groundhogese, he directed the President and the Inner Circle
to his precise prediction Scroll, which reads:

"At Gobbler’s Knob on Groundhog Day
We celebrate a world-wide Holiday.
It’s mighty cold weather, you’ve been braving.
Is it more Winter or is it Spring that you’re craving?
Since you’ve been up all night and starting to tottle
I, Punxsutawney Phil, shall not dawdle.
My faithful followers, I could clearly see
A beautiful, perfect shadow of me.
Six more Weeks of Winter, it shall be!"
