Vernal Equinox is a cycle of seven poems by Virginia DeCourcey, written in a single creative burst when she was about twenty-five. They were unlike anything she had written before, or would write again. She considered them flawed, but discovered that all attempts at revision only weakened them, so she decided to leave them as they were first written. ~~ She was born and raised on a small cattle ranch in northern Wyoming. After her father’s death when she was six, she moved with her family to Colorado Springs. Her first publication was an epistemological study on the nature of learning which appeared in the Rampart Journal of Individualist Thought when she was 16. In the same year she wrote a regular column for the Colorado Springs Gazette-Telegraph. She graduated with honors from Rockford College, majoring in classical studies and philosophy. Later she studied the conservation of rare books and manuscripts at the Univ of Chicago and journalism at the Univ of Minnesota. She died in 1986 at the age of 36.
