Even that touchy-feely publication, the International Business Times published in 2015 a short paean on celebrating the vernal season in poetry:

"First Day Of Spring Poems: Celebrate The March 20 Vernal Equinox With Robert Frost, Emily Dickinson Writings"

Extracts from six poets are listed, including one from old Bysshe's The Sensitive Plant, (1820)...o:)

Vernal jape, sadly identified as a Coronated Raptor, Vultur major ssp. horribilis . . . (until now we only had some Vultures (Eurasian Griffon) as stragglers here in Holland)
