Daylight Savings Swing Time

Each Spring with Daylight Savings time
We set our clocks ahead
Then gripe and moan of that lost hour
Of sleep we missed in bed.

We wish to leave well enough alone
And forego the seasonal fix
Until we readjust internal clocks
To 5 o'clock being six!

Once again the sun is rising
As to work we drive.
And though for a day or two it's hard
We know that we'll survive

Especially as the days grow warm
And we see the blooming of the spring.
Then we dig out that bag of clubs
And get back in the swing!

I hate daylight savings time. I was getting up after dawn and driving happily to work, now I get up and it's pitch black and cold.

Since I stopped getting up with alarm clocks and started getting up with the dog, I've come to love the Spring time change. Dog goes by the sun, and now the sun doesn't come up until 7 AM, when last week it was up at 6 AM. I get an extra hour of sleep now! The reverse is true at the autumn time change.

related to your post on dogs, as well as the above -- dogs help to link us to the rythms of nature as opposed to the rythms of industrial society!
