Vernal Equinox :: L’Équinoxe du printemps

“Spring passes and one remembers one’s innocence.
Summer passes and one remembers one’s exuberance.
Autumn passes and one remembers one’s reverence.
Winter passes and one remembers one’s perseverance.” 
― Yoko Ono

Even though the vernal equinox arrived yesterday, it is still winter here. The sun is getting hotter and it is making the snow melt… but oooh so slowly. The rivulets of water running down the street are just starting and they have announced more snow for tomorrow. I will not despair though as I can see that the birds are arriving in great flocks, my dog has been howling and prowling throughout the nights as the critters are waking up from their long nights’ sleep and I am happy. Happy that spring has arrived.

L’équinoxe du printemps est arrivé hier et nous sommes encore en hiver…. même si le soleil est de plus en chaud, et qu’il réussit à faire fondre un peu de neige, ohhh à quelle lenteur. Et en plus, ils annoncent d’autre neige pour demain. Mais je ne désespère pas car je sais qu’il va poindre son nez très bientôt car les oiseaux arrivent en grande envolée, les animaux nocturnes se réveillent et mon chien hurle et se promène de long en large pendant toute la nuit… donc ce n’est pas surprenant qu’il dorme toute la journée! Il est épuisé -))) Ces sons me rendent heureuse. Heureuse que le printemps soit enfin arrivé.
