  1. I have not read this poem before, though I read a lot of Emily Dickinson. Very true. But just now I do not mind the shorter day because of Thanksgiving and then Advent and Christmas in the near future. I mind the shorter days more when they actually have begun to lengthen.

    1. I feel the same way, Kristi…It’s after Christmas, in January and February, that the cold and dark seem to set in too deeply, and Spring seems a long way off. Maybe the effects of light deprivation are cumulative, too? I just know that it’s hard not to be a bit glum then.
