201801 Monthly Poem



Well, that's done and dusted

The old year finally gone,

A new year with its promises

To our lives has just begun.


We'll plan our annual holiday

Look forward to the spring,

Celebrate new life at Easter

(What happiness that brings).


We may be even daft enough

To make New Year Resolutions,

Promising that to break them

Would take a revolution.


But, hang on just a minute,

Take each day as it comes,

Don't take next day for granted

It will not come for some.


God guides and guards and keeps us

In His loving care

Let's accept each day as it's given

God's love with all to share.



Paul Scrivener
