Have You Ever Seen An Equinox?


Have You Ever Seen an Equinox?

Latin is a confusing tongue,

were mixed meanings rule of course,

Because we know that an OX is a big ol' steer

and an Equine is a horse.

Yet, equinox is the Latin word,

For the even split 'tween night and day,

As we shift from summer into fall,

as daylight slips away,

There is another one again in March,

As Winter yields to Spring,

Do you suppose the cow and horsey parts ,

just swap ends on the thing?

I know it must sound silly,

The Equin..ox I visualize,

Them Latin dudes should have known,

that Equals.. got no Eyes !
