Cheer at endings as you’d at the start

When first light of Sun snaps away all winter blues,

On New Year’s Day,

A year’s gone by yet again,

New beginning,

Exciting they seem, daring to go,

When world is painted in all vibrant hues,

Like freshly moulded clay,

Time’s loss, time’s gain,

Start of an inning,

Like bloom of flower, deliberately slow,

While mojo of New year slip and lose,

Jubilation stopping to stay,

Like excited feign,

Wane winning,

Steadily crumbles light of candle’s glow,

While the days in calendar choose,

To tilt, dance, delightfully sway,

And end of year reign,

Continue grinning,

Like at the start of year, let at the end flow and not lie low.
