In Spring when maple buds are red,
      We turn the Clock an hour ahead;
      Which means, each April that arrives,
      We lose an hour
      Out of our lives.
Who cares? When Autumn birds in flocks
      Fly southward, back we turn the Clocks,
      And so regain a lovely thing—
      That missing hour
      We lost last Spring.
~Phyllis McGinley, “Daylight Saving Time”
