Darke County Senior Scribe
Daylight Savings Time
By Lois Wilson

Once again Senior Scribe Poet Laureate Lois Wilson is on top of the season with her insightful look at the important events of the day.

This time it’s Daylight Savings Time. Every spring, an hour is taken away from us, only to be given back every fall. Some complain; some take it in stride. Wilson provides her thoughts about this annual event.

Wilson's completed set of books has a new edition – now six volumes – of published poetry. Volume 1 is out of print and no longer available, however Volumes 2-6 are available and are offered as a fundraiser for Empowering Darke County Youth. Enjoy great poetry and help a child achieve his or her educational goals. For additional information, contact

Our time has changed back once again. Here are some thoughts about time.


Have you noticed as you look back
When you were young, time went so slow?
Now time flies; it's on a fast track.
Those days, those years--where did they go?
It seems to me
Our goal should be:
We must learn to live each minute
And love our time while we're in it.

Yesterday is gone
For its sun has set,
And tomorrow’s dawn
Has not appeared yet.
You must not forget
If you practice how
To live in the now,
Time won’t be forfeit.
There’ll be no regret;
This is life’s secret—
So make it your vow.
