On To A New Year
Julie Hebert, © 2011
This is the year that things will change,
And last year will be just that.
We have learned from our mistakes and now look forward,
It's our year to be up to bat.
Money won’t be an issue as we will make more,
And all of our bills will get paid.
We will reframe from overspending and get a vacation,
And last year will start to fade.
Although those memories will start to fade,
We will never truly forget that year.
It was one of the hardest years we’ve had,
But this year will bring us great cheer.
So to the year that will bring us cheer,
We welcome this wonderful change.
And we hope and we pray for a year full of fun,
It will be up to us to arrange.
A Happy New-Year Party
Poet: Mary Helm
I awoke this morning
When the sun was shining bright
And looked out of my window
On a world all dressed white.
Every hill was frosted
Like a "happy birthday" cake,
The icing growing thicker
With each fluffy sifted flake.
The fence posts stood like candles
In each swirly, frosted holder;
A birthday party, I exclaimed,
The world is one year older.
I dressed myself and hurried
To the whitest, softest drift,
And made a jolly snowman
For the New Year's birthday gift!
Closing Of The Year
And now at the closing, I want to remind you,
Of the many good times you have left far behind you.
How the thoughts will come up as we meet here each year,
Of the many dear friends who no longer are here;
Not the good times alone this occasion endears.
But as we look back down the vista of years,
Loved faces we see through the mellowing haze
Of sweet retrospect, going back to the days
That friendship has hallowed, whose memory still
We cling to and cherish; the bright thoughts that thrill
Our hearts with a rapture we would not forego
For all that the future may hold: and we know
'Tis joy of past pleasures and friendships which gives
The charm that shall linger while memory lives.
An Awesome Year
Poet Catherine Pulsifer, © 2020
A new year, is it the end
Or is it a new beginning
Does our life just blend
Or is it winning?
As the new year starts
A time of reflection is good
Are we living with heart
Are we doing what we should?
So as the year begins
We should set our goals
And take action to win
Don't be stopped by the potholes.
Be determined to have a good year
You will face challenges but you can overcome
If you attitude is positive and of good cheer
The year can be one that is awesome!
The Old Year And The New
Poet: C D. Bradlee
Gone forever out of our sight,
Its good and bad, its wrong and right,
The grand Old Year!
Just like a bride, all dressed in white,
All full of love and grace and light,
The blest New Year!
Passed up to God, and left for aye,
Weighed down by age and great decay,
The loved Old Year!
With youthful look and full of peace,
Having of life a twelve months' lease,
The good New Year!
Away from sight, no more to give,
With not another day to live,
The old, Old Year!
With gifts of love and holy cheer,
With all things great and good and dear,
All hail, New Year!
Thanks for the past, and all that's given
Of light and strength and truth and heaven,
Great thanks, Old Year!
And hope for every coming day,
That wisdom's light may guide our way,
All hope, New Year!
The Old Year Now Away
The old year now away is fled,
The new year it is entered,
Then let us now our sins down-tread
And joyfully all appear.
Let's merry be this holiday,
And let us now both sport and play,
Hang sorrow, let's cast care away:
God send you a happy New Year!
And now with New-Year's gifts each friend
Unto each other they do send;
God grant we may all our lives amend,
And that the truth may appear.
Now like the snake cast off your skin
Of evil thoughts and wicked sin,
And to amend this New Year begin:
God send us a happy New Year!
And now let all the company
In friendly manner all agree,
For we are here welcome, all may see,
Unto this jolly good cheer.
I thank my master and my dame,
The which are founders of the same;
To eat, to drink now is no shame:
God send us a merry New Year!
Come, lads and lasses every one,
Jack, Tom, Dick, Bessy, Mary, and Joan,
Let's cut the meat up unto the bone,
For welcome you need not fear;
And here for good liquor we shall not lack,
It will whet my brains and strengthen my back;
This jolly good cheer it must go to wrack:
God send us a merry New Year!
Come, give's more liquor when I do call,
I'll drink to each one in this hall;
I hope that so loud I must not bawl,
But unto me lend an ear;
Good fortune to my master send,
And to my dame which is our friend,
Lord bless us all, and so I end:
God send us a happy New Year!

God keep and bless you on this special day
God watch over you this I always pray
God give you faith to see your dreams come true
And on this New Year may God bless you.
Out with the old
In with the new
Cheers to the future
And all that we do
May this year, my loving friend,
Bring thee peace without alloy ;
Keep this token as a charm.
Proof of Friendship ever dear,
We wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas
a prosperous and happy New Year.
We wish you many blessings to all.
Here's to the year that has gone
With its share of joy and sadness
And here's to the year to come
May it have a full measure of gladness
New Year Toast
A happy New Year! grant that I,
May bring no tear to any eye.
When this New Year in time shall end,
Let it be said I’ve played the friend,
Have lived and loved and laboured here,
And made of it a happy year.
So Happy Holidays to you,
And Happy New Year too.
I hope you are rewarded,
For everything you do.
Catherine Pulsifer, My Christmas Wish for You
