Daylight Savings

We’ve gained an hour people like to say

as Daylight Savings Time has ended.

What to do with mine?

Finish that lovely book

bake a pie

write a poem

loll in bed

or this:

write letters to those I love

enumerating my small and large

admirations one by one to each

a flat out admiring list

Brothers sisters sons friends

even the special ones who’ve gone on.

Nieces and nephews one by one

Friends old lovers (now there’s a trick)

Just a list, a modest, no,

an elaborate accounting

Surely an hour well spent.
