Light in the Night…


Next week does start the summer time change,

When the night does give way to the day,

In a most unfriendly and unsporting way,

Turned ahead are the clocks, one more hour of light will be strange…


Strange though as it may seem,

We do get used to the change in amount of light,

When we do have to change back,

To night time earlier becoming so black,

We are downright depressed and down,

Seems we do get hurt in some way to the extreme…


So again we do allow the change to occur,

Though for the most part we do accept it in a blur,

Of negative emotions and not positive slurs,

Our minds would rather the time change be indefinitely deterred…

As a parent, when the kids were younger, I loved the winter time... it was easier to settle them down... heck, you ate supper and it was dark out... if I didn't have to work, I'd love the summer time, playing in the yard all night...

I am with you, Ed..set it and leave it alone!! Arizona is the smart state, they never change their clocks. Though I like the extra hour of sunlight, I hate this time takes me weeks and a few headaches to get used to getting up so early. I get up at 4 am already so this will be like 3 am for a while..sighs.
Take care,
