It is new,
Its colour a perfect hue
Its fragrance nothing like you’ve ever perceived.
So let your heart be ready to receive
the new year with its fortunes and tears;
its blessings that may be disguised in twists and turns,
Its fears that sometimes may burn.
Beyond it all,the new year despite being unclear
Will be to them that are unafraid to stand on faith’s heels
A constant delight to gaze on with hope
And a friend to shower with love
Its a new year!
Oh let your ear the good tidings hear,
and the sorrowing tales bear
Yet, in all, always be of good cheer.
