Do Save Time, rising sooner by one hour,
utilize daylight as you limit night.
"Rise and Shine in the early morning" light,
as temperament gets a wee bit sour.
Forfeit one hour in the early springtime,
take it back at night with early dark-fall.
"Rise with the chickens," hear early birdcall;
roost with the night owl, hear the midnight chime.
Some insist it saves the blooming daylight,
increases an all-productive instinct,
making one's worth just a bit more succinct
and reduces crime that occurs at night.
Do not complain 'bout a sore lack of rest.
Just change your mood to reflect at its best --
and put your inner system to the test.

I believe family is a gift from God and should be treated as such. I love writing with a broad array of intent and purpose. I have written poetry virtually all my life, and much nonfiction in academia. My expanded efforts in all areas have finally taken off in retirement. I have much to accomplish now that I have the time. Other hobbies are painting, researching ancestry and myriad topics for my writing, knitting, crocheting, cooking -- always trying new recipes and always cooking for my health. I have many other hobbies, but these seem to dominate most of my time. Oh, did I mention I am the mother of three grown children and grandmother of seven. I have been blessed immensely and am the happier for it.
