In Which Daylight Savings Time Robs Me Of Daylight

It's recent that the sun's been up with me,
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.


  1. It's been too long since I mentioned how much I enjoy your Shtuff. I enjoy your Shtuff. I probably don't tell you often enough because I always figure I should do it in rhyme, which comes readily to me, but I never get around to it. Anyway, thanks.

  2. Aww, Murr! Thank you. Rhyme's just this thing, you know? I like to hear from people no matter how they put it ;)

  3. Well put. Don't forget the grind of resetting clocks, VCRs., etc. It's too early for Daylight Saving. YODPM
