snuffing the candle at both ends

it's only november and the sun sets at about 4:30! yikes! it'll be 3:30 by the time solstice arrives...nothing else to do but write a poem about it:

sun rising late
sun setting soon
candle being
snuffed at both ends

so, this is
how the year ends...
the attitude
of 52-degrees latitude

shivering winter
arms akimbo
will greet march
with open arms
