New Year, All Year
As Old Year draw closed, gifts displayed and art's posed,
T'is time for dear life's heart's reflection;
Let no quest go unwrought, Be as friend and let not
Your soul strive unfaithful defection.
Some friends be unconstant, but be thee undaunted.
Be true and full of heart.
Give though unrewarded, Thy resolution be awarded
By light's true work of art.
So as others tow their souls, bereft of charity's bowl,
and wander aimlessly through the night;
With each act of aid, and warm action laid,
Thy floating soul be their guiding light.
