We live in an old chaos of the sun,|
Or old dependency of day and night,
Or island solitude, unsponsored, free,
Of that wide water, inescapable.
— Wallace Stevens, "Sunday Morning," lines 110-113
Happy Vernal Equinox! And woe unto you who is not of the Sun, for we live in an old chaos of the sun!
(It's the real reason for the season, you know . . .)
