EJ was to post today but has had a varied difficult work schedule so I will fill in with a poem. Looking forward to the return of our poetry lover.

The Year

What can be said in New Year rhymes,

That's not been said a thousand times?

The new years come, the old years go,

We know we dream, we dream we know.

We rise up laughing with the light,

We lie down weeping with the night.

We hug the world until it stings,

We curse it then and sigh for wings.

We live, we love, we woo, we wed,

We wreathe our prides, we sheet our dead.

We laugh, we weep, we hope, we fear,

And that's the burden of a year.

-- Ella Wheeler Wilcox

My sincere apologies! 12 hour swing shifts are a huge adjustment! Will try to catch up over the next couple of days. Please forgive me.

P.S. I love this poem!
