Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!

Now the year is dying fast...
All his children stand around...
Twelve there are: I dimly mark
All their figures in the dark,
Hovering near the patriarch...
Pressing the year's death-cold brow,
I rose up with many a vow.

~Caroline May (1820–c.1891), a.k.a. Caromaia, 
"The Dying Year's Counsels," in The Christian Treasury, 1880
