“Spring Has Sprung! The Grass Has Riz! I Wonder Where The Flowers Is?” That great comedian/gourmand: Jughead, of Archie Comic Book fame, “said” that a long time ago on paper.
Appropriate for the First Day of Spring, that old dormant “poem” springs up again with a new life.

“Definition of Spring”
“Spring is one of the four temperate seasons. Spring marks the transition from winter into summer.”
“According to the astronomical definition, spring begins on the Vernal Equinox (usually March 21 in the Northern Hemisphere, and September 22 in the Southern Hemisphere), and lasts until the summer solstice (usually June 21 in the Northern Hemisphere and December 21 in the Southern Hemisphere). In 2009, Spring fell on March 20th in the Northern Hemisphere. According to this definition, therefore, the day called Midsummer’s Day in some traditions is the first day of Summer. Meteorologists generally define the beginning of spring as March 21 in the Northern Hemisphere and September 21 in the Southern Hemisphere.” read more from Wikipedia…
