Wake up!

I forgot to set the clocks ahead 
And almost missed a coffee date. And now, 
 When I should have been cooking dinner,
 I’m staring out the window as I type, 
Distracted by a first stray daffodil 
Glowing bright among the dried out stalks 
Of lavender and ferns. 

Watching as my winter lawn turns golden 
In the late afternoon, I wonder:
 It’s so bright outside. How did it get so late?
 Clearly the time has changed: 
 All nature sings Wake up!
