I think its a shame that some people on this forum are 'trashing' poetry simply because you can't understand it. To suggest that poetry is something that contaminates society, or that poets should do math or science, is quite funny considering that this poem is trying the emphasise that life is about more than work, science and verifiable facts. your loss if you can't appreciate this eye opening poem.

This poem doesn't need to be about DST. It can still relate to earlier sunrises in the springtime since it would be after the winter solstice.
