Remember: Change your clock!

Clocks will move forward one hour on Sunday 29 March 01:00 GMT in UK (at 02:00 in Spain)

We can remember which way the clocks are set by the help of this phrase:

Spring Forward; Fall Back (Fall = Autumn)

Sylvia Plath

Nicholas Hughes, Sylvia Plath’s son commits suicide

The son of the poets Ted Hughes and Sylvia Plath has taken his own life, 46 years after his mother gassed herself while he slept. He was only a baby when his mother died but she had already sketched out what he meant to her in one of her late poems. (In Nick and the Candlestick, published in her posthumous collection Ariel)

For further information: Times Online

Nick And The Candlestick
I am a miner. The light burns blue.
Waxy stalactites
Drip and thicken, tears

The earthen womb

Exudes from its dead boredom.
Black bat airs

Wrap me, raggy shawls,
Cold homicides.
They weld to me like plums.

Old cave of calcium
Icicles, old echoer.
Even the newts are white,

Those holy Joes.
And the fish, the fish----
Christ! They are panes of ice,

A vice of knives,
A piranha
Religion, drinking

Its first communion out of my live toes.
The candle
Gulps and recovers its small altitude,

Its yellows hearten.
O love, how did you get here?
O embryo

Remembering, even in sleep,
Your crossed position.
The blood blooms clean

In you, ruby.
The pain
You wake to is not yours.

Love, love,
I have hung our cave with roses.
With soft rugs----

The last of Victoriana.
Let the stars
Plummet to their dark address,

Let the mercuric
Atoms that cripple drip
Into the terrible well,

You are the one
Solid the spaces lean on, envious.
You are the baby in the barn.
