_________ To a Glad New Year _________

Toot the trumpets! Strike the strings and sing!
On your feet! Step lively in the dance!
Age and Youth alike are on the wing
Going forward: Time moves like a lance
Let loose by some celestial super strength
Amidst the muck and mire of our dozing
Driving us, reminding that life’s length
Never gives us room for much reposing.
Esurient? Appease the appetites
Wholesome and pure. The body, gross and vile,
Yields but sickly transient delights ~
Evoking ennui with a knowing smile.
Awake! A blessed New Year is at hand!
Resolve to love and give without demand!

  1. There really is something hopeful about turning over the calendar to a new year because a new year can represent a new start, a better page for our lives.

    HAPPY NEW YEAR, FT!

  2. The New Year offers us something to be hopeful about . So let's turn over the calendar to a new page with a New Year and hope that our NEW PRESIDENT will bring us the hope and chance we need. Because we certainly need some hope after this "president "A new year can represent a new start, and better hope for our Country.
    We sure need it.

    HAPPY NEW YEAR!

  3. Study history. Deeply... Thoroughly. Learn the lessons it provides. All will be well if everyone is willing and honest with themselves.

    HAPPY NEW YEAR!

  5. __________ On New Year’s Day _________

    Our hope would be to take the roadblocks down
    No more to have to hide behind the walls
    Negativity built with a frown,
    Even though she smiles in gleaming halls
    Welcoming all with fawning falsity,
    Yet yearning all the while for something solid.
    Excitement dies in stuffy halls at tea,
    As hypocrisy makes discourse witless, stolid.
    Rarely may we speak without a filter.
    ‘Tis safer not, lest someone take offense.
    So, fearing to be thought bizarre –– off kilter ––
    Daft –– depraved –– or simply too intense ––
    A fear of ostracism serves P-C,
    Yielding a moribund society.
