To the Old Year...





We have wept your laughter-tears
And slept on tears of woe
And now, like all the other years
Away, away you flow

Into your tide we shed our dream
And bled our aching pen
The silence of your subtle stream
Is mightier than men

Yet still we wish upon your star
And pray the Lord to keep
Our loved ones whether near or far
As to yon brink you sweep

Then, as you fall away, away
To Past’s eternal home
A New Year fills its gold and gray
With what is yet to come
