  1. A New Year Born
    Poet: Mrs. C. K. Smith


    The time has come the Orient light
    Of New Year's dawn is here!
    Aurora bursts the gates of night,
    And lo! a new born year!

    How softly comes his gentle tread,
    As if 'twere Reason's child,
    And knew the Older Year was dead
    In Time's huge volume filed.

    His bearing is the most discreet,
    His breath is like the rose;
    No snowy sandals on his feet,
    No pendants from his nose.

    The icicles he leaves behind,
    Old Boreas disdains;
    To rob the North he's disinclined;
    To suit the West he aims.

    He aims to suit our Western clime,
    Where loveliest flowers bloom,
    Where yellower than a golden mine
    The orange is at home.

    Last year he paid a visit here
    And learned what we'd accept;
    For other lands, with colder cheer
    His frosty jewels kept.

    With open hand he warmly greets
    The dwellers near our bay;
    He smiles on every one he meets,
    Then hurries on his way.

    For round the world his mission is,
    To leave no spot untrod;
    Not sorrow, weal or woe are his
    All these he leaves with God.



  2. Happy New Year
    Poet: B. R. Clement


    Happy New Year to you
    We wish you success in all you do
    Filled with optimism and good cheer
    Remember we love you oh so dear.

    Let the year come one day at a time
    Make sure you allow for some downtime
    Do not worry about what is to come
    Just do your best and it will be awesome.



  3. New Year Blessings
    Poet: J. S. Ogilvie


    Gladly now it is my pleasure,
    Joys to wish you, without measure,
    Happiness and peace attending,
    With pure heavenly blessings blending.



  4. New Start
    Poet: C. A. Lynch


    We stop and countdown the beginning of the year
    We spend it with family and friends who are dear
    We reflect upon the year that has gone by
    We have had times of laughter and times we have cried.

    But while we look back we look ahead
    We are full of optimism not of dread
    No matter what has happened in the past
    It does not mean it has to last.

    Each New Year we get to start again
    Surround by family and friends
    We move forward with a thankful heart
    That we get this brand new start.



  5. Believe
    Poet: Julie Hebert


    The days seem to start again,
    Yet nothing seems to have changed.
    We continue on with our lives much the same,
    Checking off our lists and getting things arranged.

    But then the countdown does begin
    To a New Year; we set our resolutions
    We celebrate and do bring in
    A new year for our contributions.

    We can reflect and choose
    New goals to achieve
    As long as we try we no longer loose
    We need to do our best and believe!



  6. A great poem to remind us to leave the old year with its failures and errors in the past.
    A reminder to think of the new year as a new beginning to start fresh!

  7. Old Year Slips Away
    Poet: Marion Sanford


    And as the Old Year slips away,
    He kindly with him takes;
    The pages we have blurred and marred.
    With failures and mistakes.

    The blighted hopes and needless fears.
    Are gone beyond recall,
    And ours once more the fair, clean page
    The New Year brings to all.



  8. Thoughts For The New Year
    Poet: Isabel C. Byrum


    The morn has dawned both calm and clear
    Upon another happy year,
    And from glad hearts
    Our welcome starts.

    No echoes of the past we bring,
    For of the future we would sing,
    In accents clear,
    This bright New-year.
