New Year’s Eve Is Fun, I Believe

Two fellow bloggers began the sublime:
Filling this week’s posts with rhyme.
I’ll gladly comply
Since, happily, I
Can partake in such fun this time.

Now, tonight is New Year’s Eve.
A time to enjoy, I believe.
But don’t overdo it
Or you’ll start the year blue; it
Should be the best one we can weave.

My dogs will celebrate too
They’ll help toast the New Year, it’s true,
With water, not wine
But that’s just fine.
They’ll like helping us ring in the new.

So Happy New Year to you, everyone.
Writers, readers and all, have some fun!
Make this year the best
Outshining the rest,
With happiness and love times a zillion!

(And yes, I know I’ve stretched things. It’s pretty bad, isn’t it? Far from a perfect rhythm or rhyme, but I think it gets its message across!)

Happy New Year to each of you and your families--including your pets, of course. By the way, I read that tonight is a Blue Moon!

Nothing silly about wishing for a happy new year for all!

Happy New Year to you, your family and your pets.

Good poem. I have no talent whatever in writing poetry, though I admire poets.

Linda O. Johnston said...

Thanks, Camille and Monica. I read a much better poem, a recap of 2009, in the L.A. Times this morning. But hopefully mine is more fun.

Hi Linda,
That was cute! And yes, tonight is a blue moon, which I guess doesn't happen too often.
Happy New Year!

Betty Hechtman said...

What a fun blog! Perfect for New Year's Eve.

Part of what makes it fun is that you did stretch it. Happy New Year!

Linda O. Johnston said...

Thanks, Betty. And Happy New Year to you, too!

Thanks, too, to Mason and Janie. I was remiss again in approving the posting of your comments, but they're greatly appreciated!! Happy New Year!
