I wish all of my readers Happy New Year, 2021
And may it be a WHOLE LOT BETTER THAN 2020
New Year’s Eve, so still I know,
But something’s in the wind,
There’s a sense of magic about,
It’s now we need our friends.
Happy new Year of Princessing.
On New Year’s Day
By Kenn Nesbitt
On New Year’s Day a year ago,
I started off the year
by making resolutions
that were probably severe.
I said I’d save my money,
as this seemed so very wise.
I vowed I would improve my health.
I swore I’d exercise.
I stated I would do my homework
every single day.
I’d brush my teeth religiously
to ward off tooth decay.
I’d eat my fruits and vegetables
and keep my bedroom clean.
I’d treat my sister kindly
though she’s often very mean.
My resolutions lasted me
about a half a day.
I promised I would keep them
but I broke them anyway.
So now I’m fat and penniless.
My homework’s overdue.
My sister’s mad. My teeth are bad.
My room is messy too.
And yet I think I may have found
the best of all solutions,
and this year I’ve resolved
to make NO resolutions.
I’m writing this in a state of shock,
Watching the clock—tick tock, tick tock,
Advancing, approaching, relentlessly,
A brand new year; Oh, can it be?The calendar says the same thing, too;
Time races, vanishes for me; Boo hoo!
No, wait! If time flies, I’m having fun!
A year of fun! It’s gone! It’s done!I now embrace the blur of time,
Because it simply means that I’m
Too busy with pleasure, joy, delight
To mourn the passing days’ swift flight.So I’m wishing you fast, happy days,
Pleasuring you in myriad ways,
Filled with happiness and cheer,
Oh Happy, Happy Bright New Year!
