Spring Ahead

Poem By Bill Grace

A formula for day light savings
That seemed to help
(with a nudge from Uncle Sam)
Was at four the afternoon before
To set the watch at five
And mentally subtract,
Which works well enough
For production of early morning poetry.

This thing of thinking forward
Holds great difficulty for us
In matters far more heavy
Than the management of time.

And in moments of deeper pondering
I wonder if our common weal wandering
Might prove less if we all could
Set that compass on our wrist
Ahead an hour or even two
BEFORE the alarm clock rings.

Light and pensive on a mundane topic. Good!

Keep it simple
So the past can find you
The love you lacked the courage to love
The one who was kind

Small your light
It takes the glow of many
To mark the night.

In Texas God once turned a street to gold
and as an after thought - stretched soft textured air across a continent -
so subtle was the miracle that no one noticed.

It is nice to watch them
Much as one might observe
Deer feeding undisturbed.
