Here's a happy harbinger,
A sign of good to come,
Placed where darkness dooms the day,
Placed where hope is gone.
Years, like people, age, and therefore
Need to be reborn,
Ending with a tired sigh,
Weary, weak, and worn.
Yet like a child, each new year is
Embraced with joy regained,
A harbinger of happiness
Returning once again.
