You are welcome. My other favorite one is about your shadow.

I have a little shadow that goes in and out with me.
And what can be the use of him, is more than I can see.

There is more. I use to paste a new poem above my sink every month. I think I need to go to the library and get his book of Children's Poems. I think it is called, "The Children's Hour."

I don't change my clocks. I figure right now it is 1:55 somewhere. And it drives Son #1 crazy. Then after a few days, he changes them. The one on the stove? Who cares. An hour of baking is an hour of baking.

I just wish we had two suns in our solar system so we can have longer days, year round.

My bad. I will have to ask at the library. I knew RLS has a book of poems for childen. They are written right form the mind of a child. I have a special spot in my heart for anything that makes a child laugh or smile. My heart breaks when I hear or see a child cry.

When Son #3 was growing up, if he wanted something really bad, I would tell him, I will try to get it for him. If I said, "I promise," he knew that I would never break a promise to him and that I would get it for him. He would never metioned it again because he knew. You don't break a promise to a child.

I'm in the "just leave the clocks alone" camp. The animals are wanting to be fed at 5am now instead of 6am. I don't care when it's daylight. I wish someone would give me a plausible reason for the changing besides the "it saves energy" one. Does it really? How much? Enough for a big difference? Seems like with most people working inside in artificial light and heat (and AC) and all the computers and other business machines that it seems to be a wash to me. Maybe not but I hate the change both in the spring and in the fall.

DST came about during WWI. It was so that the farmers would have more time to bring in their crops.

I posted neutral... I didn't know it was this weekend. I think I have been living underneath a rock. The only thing I had to change was the microwave time. The time change doesn't matter to me, because we go through it every year.
