Christian Lacdael

(Bury St. Edmunds, England)

Daylight savings' day


Open eyes glimpse many a sign,
Things seem to have slipped out of line,
Chasing the hours of sunshine,
Nature and time again entwine,
Take out time pieces to rewind,
Slide short hands an hour behind,
Make sure it's not to slip your mind,
Lest there's bother for you to find,
Lay in and gain an hour back,
Rather than rise in the pitch black,
Morning gets light it seems to lack,
Days are less daunting to attack,
We've to wait longer till daybreak,
So it's senseless to promptly wake,
Some forget the changes to make,
Thus seeding a rueful mistake.

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

I speak not, I trace not, I breathe not thy name;
There is grief in the sound, there is guilt in the fame;
But the tear that now burns on my cheek may impart
