When it's time to head off to my day gig.
A predawn snowy morn's a sight to see,
All shades of deepest blue, but what is big
Is that I see at all. For months I've gone
In darkness to my workplace, and I find
It most depressing. Now that there is dawn
Just as I leave has helped my state of mind --
But Sunday comes the time when we all spring
On forward. Daylight Savings Time will start
And rob me of that tiny, precious thing,
A sunrise, for a month or more. That part
Of my day, just improving, now will sink
Back into gloom and darkness, I should think.
