We’ll save our daylight no longer.
Those days have ended, for now at least.
No longer will we store daylight in jars
to be let out in the evening.
No piggy bank, no safety deposit box
will hold morning light until past dinner.
Nor will we pinch beams of sun like misers
with their pennies nor clutch coupons
worth an hour’s free light each evening.
Now we are left to our own devices
candles, fires, electric lights
to illuminate our evenings.  For it is 
November and Someone has decided that
now we must follow the day’s true rhythm.
And so we’ll save our daylight no longer.
