New Year

2010 is on its way
Its onset I am sensing
2009 is past and gone
2010's commencing

The New Year starts just when it will
Its arrival you can't hasten
It starts at midnight, January First
That is when the New Year is nascent

A friend sent me a New Years card
That made me the card's recipient
The card read, Hope you have
A happy year that is now incipient (just starting!)

2010 has just begun
The future, you just can't know it
The year is only starting right now
The year is still inchoate

Do you know what Auld Lang Syne means?
Not that many people know
Auld Lang Syne is a Scottish phrase
It means a long, long time ago
