When is Spring?

“When the groundhog casts his shadow

And the small birds sing

And the sun shines warm

And when the peepers peep

Then it is Spring.”

~Margaret Wise Brown (1910-1952)

(Margaret Wise Brown was an American writer of children’s books, including the picture books Goodnight Moon and The Runaway Bunny.)
