Spring Forward, Fall Back

Monday, March 11, 2013

Spring forward
To save an hour of daylight.
Put it in the bank
Until the dark of winter.

Fall back
Into the evening gloom.
Open the vault
To lengthen the days.

Empty the treasure chest
Of sunlight and illusion.
Evening hours borrowed from morning,
And then returned.

No hour gained,
No hour lost.
Each day still with twenty-four
To run it's course.

Minds are easily deceived,
But you can't fool Mother Nature.
