A brand New Year arrived last night
it came while I was waiting.
but I did not hear the horns or shouts
of people celebrating.
because, you see, I fell asleep
before the hour,
when the old year silently passed out
and the New Year entered in.
but I have a clean new calendar
which hangs before my eyes
and every day that's listed
will hold a new surprise.
happy new year.
it's going to be good, perhaps
