Equinox Eve

Tonight is the last night of winter! Doubtless these two raccoons I saw sitting in a tree last week looking down on snow-covered Central Park in New York City, will welcome the warmer season. Here's my favorite welcome spring poem. Click to enlarge.
When the Hounds of Spring

by Algernon Charles Swinburne

For winter's rains and ruins are over,
And all the season of snows and sins;
The days dividing lover and lover, 
The light that loses, the night that wins;
And time remember'd is grief forgotten,

And frosts are slain and flowers begotten, 

And in the green underwood and over 
          Blossom by blossom the spring begins.
