"What can be said in New Year rhymes,

That's not been said a thousand times?

The new years come, and the old years go,

We know we dream, we dream we know.

We rise up laughing with the light,

We lie down weeping in the night.

We hug the world until it sings,

We curse it then sigh for wings

We live, we love, we woo, we wed,

We wreathe our prides...
