Saving Daylight

I guess it is almost that time of year When we head to our clocks and move the gear. In the spring it is forward we will hear And I will lose an hour of sleep I fear. In the fall it's set them back an hour To give us more sun to devour. They call this Daylight Savings Time Yet do we ever really save a dime? Better use of daylight they say Yet at the office till dark I stay. Saving daylight for some it may be Saving daylight for me I don’t see.

Yes I think you are right Jan, just couldn't seem to get that to fit in my poem:). Messes me up also, yet I am sure it is great for the farmer. Thanks Jan. Your the best. Janet
