"A New Year Motto" by Iva May Terry (1934)

A New Year Motto.


Step by step in steady rhythm,

        With a military tread

And a grim determination,

        We are forging on ahead.

With a tender recollection

        We must bid this year adieu,

But be happy and courageous

        As we march into the new.

We will hope it may be brighter

        That the year which now is past

And that just around the corner

        We shall see the darn at last.

For our New Year resolution

        Let our motto ever be

That o'er all our difficulties

        We will gain the victory.

Troy Times. December 31, 1934: 7 col 1.
