Vernal Equinox Poems

Vernal Equinox

Spring whispers, soft and low,
Through the thawing earth below.
Sun and moon in balance, tight,
Day equals the length of night.

Buds awaken, brave and bold,
From the winter's chilly hold.
Life reborn in vibrant hue,
Under skies of clearest blue.

Streams laugh in a bubbling flow,
Melting hearts like winter's snow.
Nature's canvas, freshly drawn,
In the quiet break of dawn.

Green tendrils climb, light to seek,
As the vernal equinox speaks.
A world reborn, in joy, unites,
In the dance of day and nights.
Balance Between Day and Night

Awakening at Equinox

Whispers stir the silent air,
Spring's soft touch is everywhere.
Balance finds its gentle place,
In the sun's warm, golden grace.

Ice retreats with quiet sighs,
Underneath the brightening skies.
Seeds stir in their earthen bed,
Dreams of bloom ahead are spread.

Birds return with songs of cheer,
Music sweet for all to hear.
Day and night, an even keel,
Vernal equinox's seal.

Life anew in every vein,
Winter's loss is spring's sweet gain.
In this dance of light and shadow,
Awakens life, in meadow shallow.
