New Year Glee

I always get a warm, fuzzy feeling at the beginning of a New Year, don't you?

©2015 Susan Noyes Anderson

Oh, how I love a fledgling year,
wiped free of gloom and haze,
where all the calendar is clear
to mark in sunny days.

With endless opportunities
flung open to my view,
my spirits rise upon a breeze
of all things fresh and new.

My mind flies high into the sky,
goes dancing 'round the sun.
As light as crisp, clean air am I,
afloat on dreams unspun.

Eventually, I fall to earth,
prepared to work the ground.
Rich, fertile soil is where the birth
of sweet success is found.

So Carpe annum!Seize the year!
Find brand new ways to see.
The secret key to New Year glee
is possibility.

Yes, I do like a new beginning and every January the slate is clean and I'm hopeful for the things ahead. Fall season also does that for me for some reason. I'm not seeing a lot of sunny days here in the gray season of Ohio, but it's been fairly mild and no snow as of late, so I guess that's good! I hope it's a wonderful new year for you and your family and I love that poem...thanks for the sunshine you always give to me! Happy New Year!
