The Coming of Spring

The Coming of Spring is celebrated in the Persian Tradition as NowRuz, the "New Day". A day of Nature's Awakening. Rumi has several references to "Nowruz", three in his Divane Shams.
But another ode seems even more apporpriate to herald the coming of Spring: Ode 1298 .

Nowruzetan Pirooz!
