Poem for Daylight Savings Time

This one's untitled. By "fire horse," I mean the Chinese zodiac element and animal. I know a few fire horses, but I'm thinking of one in particular here. :)

Your fiery nature
might burn
low,

oh,
but never
burns out, dearest

fire horse, pedaling
your bicycle
uphill

out
of winter,
into spring again.
