What Does It Take to Make a February?

    One sleepy groundhog
    In a striped nightcap
    Just waking up
    From a five-month nap.
    (Can you imagine that?)
    Add a birthday cake,
    For a president or two,
    One wore a tricornered hat,
    The other stood six-feet-two.
    (Can you remember who?)
    Last of all, please include
    A construction paper valentine,
    Delivered by your smiling hands
    From your own house to mine.
    (I think you’re divine!)
    And that’s what it takes
    To make a February.
