Happy New Year!

I hope the New Year, 2007, brings everyone dreams-come-true.

The Year's First Poem

The New Year still in swaddling-cloths doth lay;
In darkness soft his infant fingers curl
About night's blanket, waiting for the day,
While last year's stars around him twinkling play.

What does he bring with him, this babe yet new,
That innocently turns in tender sleep?
And will his reign be crowned with wonders true,
So filled with promise, can he yet them keep?

Each New Year comes and innocently wakes,
With eyes that see the world so burning bright;
And when his course is run, his sad leave takes,
And doffs his mantle at next New Year's night.

Upon this New Year other New Years wait,
Succession 'graved in stars behind Time's gate.
