Another Year


Its another year
A new season is borne
Old period expires
Never to be seen again

Its another year
New hopes are birthed
All land rejoices
Fire-crackers brighten skies

Its another year
A year of hope
A year of great expectations
Innumerable resolutions are made

Its a new dawn
Stars twinkle brighter
Moon flangs its rays on earth
Joy swallows all landscape

Its year of new wishes
Horses will ride cars
Castles will be built in the sky
We just wish and wish

The journey of 365 days
Has begun in earnest
In a twinkle of an eye
The year will pass away
So, its time for action

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
