First Day of Spring

Today is first day of spring and the first day of the Astrological Calendar. The Vernal Equinox begins today at 7:02 a.m. in the Northern Hemisphere. The sun sets at approximately 7:08 p.m. There is approximately an equal amount of day and night time hours, thus the equinox.
Time of sunrise and sunset reminds me of a scientific quatrain called,
'The Sun'
The sun neither sets nor rises
That is the stuff of poets dreams
The sun is affixed in a whirling universe
Life just isn't as it seems
