Poetry for the end of Daylight Saving Time


From the New York Times, a selection of six poems to celebrate the end of Daylight Savings Time, from our poet laureate W.S. Merwin, as well as Vijay Seshadri, Louise Glück, Derek Walcott, James Tate, and Mary Oliver.

Today you get an extra hour, to use as you wish, wisely or foolishly. Make your choice!

I just saw Merwin last night at Kenyon College. I hope to post video as soon as I'm not so swamped. Look forward to reading these poems before day's end....

...and, I see that Sara Holbrook commented on these poems in her blog, and added one of her own.
