Daylight Savings

An hour
has been lost,
still it seems
like only yesterday
when time was given
so freely, too.
Now the sun
will set late today,
and I will wait
in vain for you.
Even though clocks
run no faster,
the oblivious earth spins
with a clear conscience,
through all our hours,
all our days,
knowing exactly
what to do.
