Daylight Saving Time

Long evenings we anticipate,
before the sun goes down,
to do more before it's late,
sidewalks rolled up in town.

True, morning will be longer dark;
dew lingers 'til forenoon.
Will the proverbial meadowlark
then hail the setting moon?

In standard time, some miss sunrise,
now, up to see that sight.
To church on time, if we were wise,
set clocks ahead last night.

A pseudo-wise old man once said,
(foolishness and logic blend)
"To make longer rope, cut off a foot;
add it to the other end."
