On New Year’s Eve

New Year starsFor New Year’s Eve, bring warm bread and cold champagne!
I have oysters and cheese—
Together we’ll count the hours,
Go walk out on ice of lake,
March in endless single file just as do the years….
We’ll build a bonfire to warm hands and toes,
Give toast for generations gone and yet to come.

No need to bring stars—-
Kingdom of Heaven holds them all above.
We will celebrate with song and good cheer,
Warmed by love and gratitude
For both this precious Earth
And the Greater Silence that sustains us all.
