This is a year I’ll truly pray
with thankfulness for Hogmanay!
Though many years have been askew,
this one has been a real to-do…
the cycle’s end will firmly find me
putting its trials away behind me.
I’m glad for those who tempered it
with generosity and wit;
I hope they cross my path again,
to share sunshine instead of rain.
I’ll greet the new year happily,
anticipating joy and peace,
grateful to breathe, grateful to say
A very blessed Hogmanay.
