To The New Year - Poem by Dr. Tulsi Hanumanthu
To the New Year
If Life be a Sea and your are a Wave,
O kind New Year, will you not save
Us from sinking, by letting us ride
Atop your apex, taming the tide?
If Life be a Book and a Page you are,
O neat New Year, let us not mar
With blots and blotches, your fresh fair face,
Nor waste, with blanks, you scanty space.
If Life be a Play and you are a Scene,
Help us enact some roles that are clean,
O noble New Year, during your term.
Be fair sans favour, forgiving but firm.
If Life be a Travel and a Train you be,
O New Year dear, please hear my plea:
Carry us not, through rancid routes,
To stalls that sell forbidden fruits.
If Life be a Game and you are a Ball,
O smart New Year, fail not to fall
In goals like Health, courage, compassion;
Avoid such goals as pelf and passion.
f Life be a Prayer and you are His proxy
Bringing us alms, O New Year, mercy!
Place some crumbs of Peace in our bowls
To feed our hungry hearts and souls.
