One of the four solar holidays marking the beginning of spring.  The rejoining of the Mother Goddess and her lover-consort-son, who spent the winter months in death; or the Goddess returning to her Maiden aspect (e.g., Persephone returning from the Underworld.)

I fell asleep
oblivious to
the planets clouding over in the skies,
the slow decline of the spring moon, the songs crying out their ironies.
Achill Woman, Boland
