Happy New Year rings

Over several days it brings…

Friends stopping by

Brightening eye,

Sharing love and good things.

One Day isn’t enough,

To change hopeful from gruff…

Many’s the time

A receiving line,

Lightens like a powder puff.

It’s proper for over a week

Of the first month to seek…

A richer New Year

To all we hold dear,

Meaning it beyond when we speak!

I wish for all the Way,

To a better New Year every day…

To learn and rejoice

And gratefully voice

Humility—that’s okay!
