Sweet Poem to 'Open' 2010

Well, one of the sweet ways to open a year on Bookaholic Blog just has got to be a sweet poem from an equally sweet woman--Ella Wheeler Wilcox. We found this really nice. Enjoy it!

“What can be said in New Year rhymes,
That's not been said a thousand times?
The new years come, the old years go,
We know we dream, we dream we know.
We rise up laughing with the light,
We lie down weeping with the night.
We hug the world until it stings,
We curse it then and sigh for wings.
We live, we love, we woo, we wed,
We wreathe our prides, we sheet our dead.
We laugh, we weep, we hope, we fear,
And that's the burden of a year.”
