First occurrence:
Before humans
When the moon is full in February,
the weather is still  so very cold.

But among the snow, the first signs pop up
that winter may be ending.

About time, because food is getting scarce.
Carefully the groundhogs looks out of their doors
to see how long it will be until spring is coming.

But carefully, because eagles are hungry and might see them.
Check your grains and other seedlings
to get them ready for sowing season.

But for now, stay warm inside.
