New Year Poems

by David
(Somerset, UK)

A brand new year

A clean slate on which to write
our hopes and dreams.
This year:
Less time and energy on things;
More time and energy on people.
All of life?s best rewards,
deepest and finest feelings,
greatest satisfactions,
Come from people
People like you.

Happy New Year

** New Year Poems **

Let us all gather round and cheer,
With a drink of wine or an ice cold beer

Perhaps you're like me and don't drink the swill,
Or you're like my grandparents who live on pills.

Maybe this world seems harsh at times,
Or it's just that most of us just like to whine.

I'd say that this is a great place to be,
It all depends on how we can see.

True we've had bad things in the past,
But we know in our hearts that these will not last.

If we try our best to be simple and pure,
There's nothing our hopes and dreams cannot cure.

So, I don't know the value this is worth,
But lets all try to be happy and heal Mother Earth

Happy New Year

** New Year Poems **

How beautiful the turning of the year!
A moment artificial yet profound:
Point upon an arbitrary chart
Passing like a breath upon the heart,
Yearning with anticipation wound,

New hope new dreams in old-fashioned cheer.
Even when the boundary line is clear,
We recognize the oneness of the ground.
Years, like circles, do not end or start
Except we lay across their truth our art,
Adjusting dates as they go round and round
Revolving to a tune long sung and dear.


T'was the day before New Years with only minutes to go.
Everyone was waiting for the new year to show.

There were party hats, noise makers, and lots of Champagne.
Good food and good music no one could complain.

When suddenly the ball began to drop.
Everyone in the room came to a stop.

When the ball reached the bottom the crowd began to roar.
And confetti dropped from ceiling to floor.

Happy New Year! Happy New Year was all you could hear.
2009 was finally here.

Here's hoping your new year will be festive and live.
And may the fun continue until 2009

Happy New Year Poem

by Trish Westcott
(Napier, New Zealand)

I'd like to wish you a Happy New Year,
A time for changes and to drink a lot of beer.
A fresh start and have resolution,
Not to judge and stay out of prosecution.
As we move forward to our bright future,
There will be times that we will prosper.
So fill your glass with your favorite beverage,
And say cheers to this up and coming year.

New Year Poems

by Maggie-May
(Gateshead UK)

Here's a bunch for you Jon

The fresh page, the new leaf
The clean start we all want so much;
This is the year we sort it all out
The year we stop going Dutch.

This year has love written all over
The Mayans have promised an end;
The future looks bright and full of song
My best wish for the future I send.


Another 365 days if we're blessed
May the Lord say "Amen" to that;
Mind you he'd change his mind
If he'd seen you in your Christmas hat.
Ha Ha!


The cold spells are upon us
Blistery winds and freezing fog;
We can look forward to the New Year
Sitting round a fire of logs.

The freshness comes from this
Blue skies to look forward too;
Bulbs popping up in the garden
We'll have lost weight by then too.


More birthdays and anniversaries
That go with the march of time;
A Happy New Year once again
I'm so glad to know that you're mine.

Happy New Year Poems

An optimist stays up until midnight to see the new year in.
A pessimist stays up to make sure the old year leaves.
Bill Vaughn


L ’Shanah Tovah! Have a Happy New Year!
May all your prayers come true;
That your family will be happy and well
That love and blessings will not be in lieu.


As the clock chimes twelve we sing and clap;
Sending prayers of unity and peace;
May old friends be there with us always to share
And all our worries steadily decrease.
That good health and wealth will find us
That we're happy every step of the way;
Laughter and smiles, full of joy and enjoy
And that these will lead us to New Years Day.


Be always at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbors,
and let each New Year find you a better man.
Benjamin Franklin

Thanks Maggie...Jon
