My pipe is out, my glass is dry;
My fire is almost ashes too;
But once again, before you go,
And I prepare to meet the New:
Old Year! a parting word that’s true,
For we’ve been comrades, you and I —
I thank God for each day of you;
There! bless you now! Old Year, good-bye!
~Robert W. Service, “The Passing of the Year,” 1912
I wish each of you a Happy New Year filled with much joy. Thank you for following along with me in 2017.
Let a new chapter begin!
