The Last Night of the Year
by Isaac McLellan

Now the good old Year is dead and gone
To the grave of the Past, forever borne.
I heard last night his awful knell
Knolled gloomily by the midnight bell;
And I saw his hearse creep darkly by;
And the blackened pall on his coffin lie;
Then deepened the midnight's shadowy gloom!
And thus the good Year passed to his tomb!

Now ere we welcome the newborn year

New Year's Day
by Mary Jacqueline Simon Moo

Let us hail the newborn year,
Come our drooping hearts to cheer,
Let us all be cheerful, gay,
On this happy New Year's Day,
Social day of friendly meetings,
Joyous day of kindly greetings,
Dawning of a year of blessings,
Lover's hopes and sweet caressings,
Blessings in anticipation,
Wealth and fame in expectation,

To The New Year
by William Stanley Merwin

With what stillness at last
you appear in the valley
your first sunlight reaching down
to touch the tips of a few
high leaves that do not stir
as though they had not noticed
and did not know you at all
then the voice of a dove calls
from far away in itself
to the hush of the morning

New Year
by Ella Wheeler Wilcox

I saw on the hills of the morning,
The form of the New Year arise,
He stood like a statue adorning
THe world with a background of skies.
There were courage and grace in his beautiful face,
And hope in his glorious eyes.

'I come from Time's boundless forever,'
He said, with a voice like a song.
'I come as a friend to endeavor,

New Year (II)
by Ella Wheeler Wilcox

As the old year sinks down in Time's ocean,
Stand ready to launch with the new,
And waste no regrets, no emotion,
As the masts and the spars pass from view.
Weep not if some treasures go under,
And sink in the rotten ship's hold,
That blithe bonny barque sailing yonder
May bring you more wealth than the old.

For the world is forever improving,

Recent New year Poems
by Nkwachukwu Ogbuagu

They rise and sparkle and crackle,
Shaming the nakedness of the skies
And the city, with one frightful flame of
Burning with the zest of
Seasonal lore.
At Christmas, they salute the days
Creamed by snow and sleet,
Thrusting in us the wisdom of
Global ceremonies.

The year had ended and we are a year older.
Based on the past, we've grown bolder.

Heart's new joys reflect the old ones,
Amidst cheers and firing of guns!

Dazzling Balls of Fire
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

The old year went out with a big boom,
One sentimental New Year's Eve night.
Dark skies displayed many vivid plumes,
My stars! It was such a lovely sight!

One sentimental New Year's Eve night,
Vibrant fireworks had special meaning.
My stars! It was such a lovely sight!
A time when the future lay dreaming.

A Loved New Year
by Pratik Shaw

Just another year with new resolutions, happy faces, a sense of confidence, trust and enthusiasm..
Yet at the end of this cycle of these 365 days,52 weeks, 12 months, all these will again get converted to unfinished promises, sad faces, lack of confidence, disgust and idleness.. At max, a day might be passed in complete happiness, but let the sun set on it and the moon come out at midnight, your heart will still ache remembering your beloved and your long lost friends..
This might seem to be demotivating, but I have no such intention, I am being realistic.. Sweet words at the start of the year feel dead and left out at the end. People lose faith in humanity when people leave them for simple and sometimes no reason at all while others who still haven't achieved their love but still striving so hard, so marvelously, yet still their attempts seem to go in vain.
How those sweetest but pure indications of love are ignored and the unconditional efforts are not given notice!! How will that heart feel after so many failed attempts and when there come a time when due to a circumstance, they cannot make any further attempts?
If you start the year on a happy note, make sure you end it with greater enthusiasm, else you would just be repeating it over and over like a time loop and you will not gain anything.
And why do we wish people New Year as "Happy", you know what would be better? A"Loved New Year" where everyone feels that there are people craving their attention and their time, where people feel important, where before dying, we live and where before being loved, we love....
Have a Loved New Year...
