Good-Bye 2011 - Hello 2012!

Downtown Lafayette

Tippecanoe County Courthouse



I’m writing this in a state of shock,
Watching the clock—tick tock, tick tock,
Advancing, approaching, relentlessly,
A brand new year; Oh, can it be?




The calendar says the same thing, too;
Time races, vanishes for me; Boo hoo!
No, wait! If time flies, I’m having fun!
A year of fun! It’s gone! It’s done!




I now embrace the blur of time,
Because it simply means that I’m
Too busy with pleasure, joy, delight
To mourn the passing days’ swift flight.




So I’m wishing you fast, happy days,
Pleasuring you in myriad ways,
Filled with happiness and cheer,
Oh Happy, Happy Bright New Year!

  28. How lovely to see the lights in downtown Lafayette - my brother lived in that area for years (he was a professor of engineering at Purdue.) And your blog is lovely, too...
