For the new year... [In reply to] Can't Post

Sympathy for uncle Baggins' cold, I'm dodging relatives who greet me with sneezes at the moment!! I can see that many view this thread though not all contribute, so with time, others may also wish to join in, it's a great idea to share poems and enjoy the twists, the turns and to travel down the path that language and imagery create.....
I like this poem about the new year...

"What can be said in New Year rhymes,
That's not been said a thousand times?
The new years come, the old years go,
We know we dream, we dream we know.
We rise up laughing with the light,
We lie down weeping with the night.
We hug the world until it stings,
We curse it then and sigh for wings.
We live, we love, we woo, we wed,
We wreathe our prides, we sheet our dead.
We laugh, we weep, we hope, we fear,
And that's the burden of a year."
Ella Wheeler Wilcox
