Hear Ye!  Hear Ye!  Hear Ye!

Now, this Second Day of February, Two Thousand and Eighteen,
the One Hundred and Thirty-second 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 Prognostication Scroll, which reads:

"Up early this morning
Far from home
Are you searching for
The Phil-osopher's stone?

Well, even my best friends
They don't know.
Is it an early Spring
Or just more snow?

My faithful followers,
Your hands (and my paws) are getting cold,
So here is my forecast
Not lead, but solid gold:

I see my Royal Shadow!
Six more weeks of Winter to go!"
