Remember to spring your clocks ahead!


Daylight Savings Time

~by Phyllis McGinley



In Spring when maple buds are red,

We turn the Clock an hour ahead;

Which means, each April that arrives,
(or March, in this case!)
We lose an hour 

Out of our lives.



Who cares? When Autumn birds in flocks

Fly southward, back we turn the Clocks,

And so regain a lovely thing--

That missing hour 

We lost last Spring.

I want to live in a state of denial and not have Daylight Savings Time.

Oh, wait - That's Arizona. :-P

"Good Night Cora dear!"
Yep, that's all I am leaving this comment for!
To say "good night!" and "I love you!"
I always try to stay awake just until you do a post but I am very tired and I know the best thing is to get to bed, so that is where I am headed directly after here :)!
