Ghosts Of The Old Year

yuk

 

The snow has ceased its fluttering flight,
The wind sunk to a whisper light,
An ominous stillness fills the night,
A pause — a hush.
At last, a sound that breaks the spell,
Loud, clanging mouthings of a bell,
That through the silence peal and swell,
And roll, and rush.

What does this brazen tongue declare,
That falling on the midnight air
Brings to my heart a sense of care
Akin to fright?
‘Tis telling that the year is dead,
The New Year come, the Old Year fled,
Another leaf before me spread
On which to write.

It tells the deeds that were not done,
It tells of races never run,
Of victories that were not won,
Barriers unleaped.
It tells of many a squandered day,
Of slighted gems and treasured clay,
Of precious stores not laid away,
Of fields unreaped.

And so the years go swiftly by,
Each, coming, brings ambitions high,
And each, departing, leaves a sigh
Linked to the past.
Large resolutions, little deeds;
Thus, filled with aims unreached, life speeds
Until the blotted record reads,
‘Failure!’ at last.

Leftovers – YOUR FAVOURITE POEM

leftovers

Thanksgiving has been over
for at least a week or two,
but we’re all still eating turkey,
turkey salad, turkey stew,turkey puffs and turkey pudding,
turkey patties, turkey pies,
turkey bisque and turkey burgers,
turkey fritters, turkey fries.

For lunch, our mother made us
turkey slices on a stick,
there’ll be turkey tarts for supper,
all this turkey makes me sick.

For tomorrow she’s preparing
turkey dumplings stuffed with peas,
oh I never thought I’d say this —
“Mother! No more turkey… PLEASE!”

NEW YEAR’S EVE RESOLUTIONS – Promte Yourself

I will spend New Year’s Eve
awake;
I will not eat anything sweet, like leftover Christmas
cake;
I will not watch “When Harry Met Sally” because I’ll have a
date;
I will smile when I hear revelers as they stay up
late;
I will not go to parties which I know are a
waste;
I will toast the New Year with champagne, a kiss and “Come What
May;”
I will treasure each moment of the
day;
I will wish only peace for those unable to
celebrate,
And toast the future with my love, my soul
mate.

Is it the end ?

The clock strikes twelve the end has come

The beer, the lager, and the whisky has gone

But it is not the end

But a new beginning

The start of a brand new year

For everyone,

2012 and the world’s having fun

A year for all new things to be done

A new job, to earn a few bob,

New seeds to sow, then see them grow

Is something we did a year ago

So happy new year to everyone

Because a new year just begun

Thomas Sims

New beginnings


New beginnings
Ever more smiles
Well being
Yesterdays past,

Tomorrows beginning
Excitement and cheer
Amongst family and friends,
Remembering the memories

We all share

The beginning of the new year
Is the time to reflect,

To make things clear
Twelve months have past

Just so quick

Like a camera flash
No time to dwell

A time to live and be well,
A new start for many

An end to all the worries
2012 is the new beginning,

A fresh start and an happy ending

Happy new year

Come what may


New year – new year

I think I will make one

A new year’s resolution

This year

Stop smoking

Be nice to the wife

Make life better each day

Come what may

Be good, be true

Be sincere to everyone

You can make a promise

But can you keep it?

Tell me more,

I have 3 or 4 Ideas

In my head

But can I keep them all?

I kept one last year

For only day

But I will try again

This year,

Come what may

I promise to be good

Not bad

I will be happy

Not sad

So this new year

I will be good

I will stop doing

This and that

With no chit – chat

I will try to keep

My new years resolution

This year

Come what may.
