A New Year...

It's time to look forward,
a time to look back,
a chance to look deeply within,
to take stock of the strengths
that we've gathered so far
and let new adventures begin.

A time to remember
the good times we've shared
with those who've been close in our hearts...
and to wish you and yours
every wonderful thing
life can bring
as the flesh new year starts.

Best wishes,
Hugs and kisses,

Ms. I.

"Winter Stars" by Larry Levis

Sometimes, I go out into this yard at night,
And stare through the wet branches of an oak
In winter, & realize I am looking at the stars
Again. A thin haze of them, shinning
And persisting.

"Jingle Books" by Angela Spence

Dashing through Bookland
In an open shelf book-cart
O'er the carpet we go
Laughing all the way, (hysterically of course)

Books on shelves fall over
Making spirits cry
Oh what fun Week 1 is so
An LRC song tonight!

Oh, Jingle books, jingle books
Jingle all the books
Oh I'm missing so many titles
That I really have to look

Oh, Jingle books, jingle books
Jingle all the books,
If you wouldn't mind checking for me
So I don't become a schnook!
