The Vernal equinox occurs today,
Officially the first day of spring
Whilst British Summertime begins
On the 29th March, (Next Weekend,
So that leaves the birds and the bees,
The flowers and trees
And hibernating animals underneath
Just over a week
To get their shit together,
Find a mate,
And get ready for the sun.
Poor old spring,
Getting thinner each year,
And, especially after this winter’s
Star turn, likely to be forgotten
As quickly as it begun.
