As Rainer Maria Rilke put it "Spring has returned. The Earth is like a child that knows poems."

As my grandpa put it "There's a difference between the first of spring on the calendar and when the first of spring actually arrives."

All I know is that today marks the vernal equinox and a song for the season is what I wanted to hear. That one from Saint Etienne always works for me.

What are you listening to tonight?

Can you help us out?
