Another fresh new year is here...
William Arthur Ward



Another fresh new year is here . . .
Another year to live!
To banish worry, doubt, and fear,
To love and laugh and give!

This bright new year is given me
To live each day with zest . . .
To daily grow and try to be
My highest and my best!

I have the opportunity
Once more to right some wrongs,
To pray for peace, to plant a tree,
And sing more joyful songs!"

To see this lovely poet has left this poem to us and still the inspiration travels on. Shall not the newness always come?
