The poetry Rita quotes to Phil is from the sixth canto of The Lay of the
Last Minstrel by Sir Walter Scott, also known as Patriotism.

Hi everyone! hey can anyone tell me if "the wretch" by Emily Dickinson is
the base for the poem said by Andie Mcdowell in the movie Groundhog Day? it
reads a little differently
