ATTENTION IPAD USERS!
Apple doesn't like listing me as "Will Shakespeare (poetry blogger)"
to differentiate me from the other guy, although everybody else does.
They took my first book but now won't take new ones. (Go figure.)
Since Smashwords distributes my books to Apple anyway,
just go to my Smashwords author page and download EPUBs from there.
Smashwords provides samples of my books also.

Sprung

Behold the vernal equinox!
It happens only once a year,
Each March, though calendars and clocks
Can’t tell us when it’s REALLY here.

It’s measured by the Sun’s return
To where it crossed the Earth’s equator
Heading north last March. We’ve learned
That’s sometimes sooner, sometimes later.

So Spring starts on a different day
Each year. Ain’t that a paradox?
Don’t ask ME why – I’ll simply say,
“Well, DUH! The vernal equinox!?
