"A New Year Welcome" by Iva May Terry (1919)

A New Year Welcome.


The old year is passing from us away,

        With its blessings and sorrows too;

We feel just a pang of regret to-day,

        As we hopefully face the New.

We think of the friends and loved ones dear

        Who were once at our fireside,

Whose voices we never again shall hear

        Till we meet on the other side.

But we should look forward with joy to-night

        To the days that are just ahead

And welcome the New Year with prospects bright

        While some kindness we try to shed.

        Green Island, N.Y.

Troy Times. December 31, 1919
