  1. New Year's Eve
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer


    I close the book to the year behind
    It matters not what happen last year.
    The new year approaches that I can design
    I have tomorrow, the start of a new year.

    I determine what will be written
    on the page for each day
    I can set goals, and resolutions
    and from them not stray.

    New Year's Eve is a time
    to reflect and set
    The goals I want to achieve
    that I have not yet.

  3. The Countdown
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer


    We all wait in anticipation for
    the clock to strike twelve.
    When that happens last year,
    we can put on the shelve.

    The countdown begins
    On New Year's Eve day.
    We celebrate the end of the year
    With a hip hip hooray.

    Ten, nine, eight, the countdown begins,
    Seven, six, five, we all sing
    Four, three, two we are almost there,
    One the clock now rings.

    Goodbye old year,
    We ring in the new
    New Year's Eve has past
    And a new year is in view.

  5. New Year's Eve Goodbye
    Poet: Lillian E. Curtis


    Old year, thy weeks and months have fled away,
    Many a sunny hour and golden day,
    Mingled with shadows by the way,
    Yet now we heave a sigh:
    Many a blessing thou hast brought,
    With happiness and wisdom fraught,
    Many a lesson hast thou taught,
    But now, old year, goodbye!

    Oft the marriage bells have rung,
    Alike the funeral songs been sung,
    And Time his harpstrings oft has strung,
    His sacred duty to not believe
    Thou'st brought joys too bright to last,
    And some with shadows overcast,
    But thy work is in the chamber of the Past.
    Old Year, Old Year, goodbye!

  7. My Book
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer


    New Year's Eve sees my book
    Full of last year
    But when the clock strikes twelve
    A blank book does appear.

    The pages are blank,
    The sheets are white
    It is up to me, what will happen
    And what I'll write.

    This New Year's Eve I can close
    Last years book
    From it I can heed
    The lessons I took.

    I can move forward to
    The new year before me
    With new achievements and
    Being the best I can be.

    This New Year's Eve
    I give thanks to God above
    For the people in my life
    And for His love.

    I thank Him for
    The year gone by
    I lift my eyes up
    To the sky.

    Thanking Him for the New Year
    Which will start
    Thanking Him for all my blessings
    From the bottom of my heart.

    A poem about the old and new year written by Lillian E. Curtis on December 31st, 1871:
  11. On New Year's Eve 1872
    Poet: Lillian E. Curtis


    Old year thou art dying now,
    All thy busy days are past,
    We've gathered in this sacred place,
    To watch thee breathe thy last.

    What the new year will bring,
    None of us can tell,
    And it is with sadness, and with joy
    We bid thee now farewell.

    'Tis hard to give thee up,
    To part with thee, old year;
    Thou hast brought much joy,
    Tho' oft' the sigh and tear.

    Many a soul from sin and sorrow
    Thou hast helped us save,
    Hast been at the marriage altar,
    And by the open grave.

    And tho thou wilt soon be gone,
    And a new one we shall see,
    Amid its cares and duties,
    We shall often think of thee.

    Hark! 'tis the clock, one hour
    And we shall know thee no more,
    Thou will be added to the list,
    Of those that have gone before.

    Pause a moment, tread lightly,
    Speak soft and low,
    And breathe gently,
    The old year is dying now.

    Silence now reigns around,
    Scarce can we suppress a tear,
    As we watch the last breath
    Of the dying year.

    Old year thou art gone,
    All thy work is done,
    And once again we bid farewell
    To eighteen seventy-one.

    And now it is with mingled feelings,
    But friendship warm and true,
    That we extend a cordial welcome,
    To eighteen seventy-two.
