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.
