Duck! Here Comes Another Year!

New Year's Sparkler


“Tonight’s December thirty-first,
Something is about to burst.
The clock is crouching, dark and small,
Like a time bomb in the hall.
Hark, it’s midnight, children dear.
Duck! Here comes another year!”
― Ogden Nash


Sometimes I like to pretend,

that I’m immune to time and trend,


I’m not,

so I always fall,

for a dream,

both large and small.


Through the Spy Glass


The idea that I could be,

a brand new me

ah, yes…

such a delight,

oblivious to my own sight,

who would I choose,

to express,

how would I…

something something





I’ve tried this before,


at the end of the day,

I always end up as myself,

like a sparkler whose sparkle has been burned away.





that’s rather lovely,

in and of itself,

to accept,

being myself.


Bleeding Heart


Happy birthday, New Year!

Don’t throw out the old,

that year is still dear,

to those of us who are counting such things,

and learning from it all.


“Indeed, everybody wants to be a wow, But not everybody knows exactly how.”
― Ogden Nash




 Happy New Year,

from us to you,

best wishes for…

whatever you wish!
