A New Years Greeting and Poem

Another fresh new year is here . . .
Another year to live!
To banish worry, doubt, and fear,

To love and laugh and give!

This bright new year is given me
To live each day with zest . . .
To daily grow and try to be
My highest and my best!

I have the opportunity
Once more to right some wrongs,
To pray for peace, to plant a tree,
And sing more joyful songs!”

William Arthur Ward

Happy New Years to everyone, aloha!

Lovely poem and song by Diana. I am wondering if there were to be images here too? Seems there are perfect spaces between your words but no pics? Just in case. Happy New Year Noel! Carol

Hi, Noel;
We spent a week in Maui earlier this year. I'm now trying to coax red ginger and plumeria to grow in my sunny window. You live in a magical place. :)
