Don’t Get Left Behind

March 25, 2017

… when the clocks go forward from Greenwich Mean Time to British Summer Time.

BST v GMT

The clocks are going forward;
they spring an hour ahead.
That makes it sixty minutes sooner
leaping out of bed.

But when our workday’s over,
we have one whole hour more
of daylight. (And of sunshine?
That’s what I’m hoping for!)

The clocks are going forward;
days will seem a little longer,
the mornings briefly darker;
let’s hope the sun grows stronger.

Then, once the summer’s over,
the clocks will all go back;
I rather wish they wouldn’t change,
it’s tricky keeping track.
