Anon shall the year's last snowflake fall,
'mid white carpets her funeral roses bloom,
'pon her brink shall life and death embrace,
bittersweet melodies from every heart plume.
Destiny her newborn shall bring forth,
rapture with sorrow to cosmic refrains dance,
man, bird and beast would teary eyed cheer,
as her rout of moments and vignettes advance.
Infant's pure eyes the beldam's shall meet,
their souls 'pon the Infinite's threshold entwine,
this sacred covenant Light ordains,
so Life may with universal Will align.
Stellar chorale this moment shall bless
with shimmering cascades of crystalline chimes,
their voices our cherished dreams shall deck,
the slumbering Earth hallow with blissful rhymes.
Dawn her radiant bounty shall bestow
'pon spirits of blossoms and snowfalls to come,
future tides in Nature's arms shall rest,
as yesterday's Seasons tomorrow's tunes thrum.
And the Wheel of the Year onward turns,
for 'pon Father Time's bosom e'er to repose,
sated, by trials wiser rendered,
the Past its weary child's gladness shall enclose.
