Hard At Work

For me the diamond dawns are set
In rings of beauty,
And all my ways are dewy wet
With pleasant duty.

A New Beginning Together

And ye, who have met with Adversity's blast,
And been bow'd to the earth by its fury;
To whom the Twelve Months, that have recently pass'd
Were as harsh as a prejudiced jury -
Still, fill to the Future! and join in our chime,
The regrets of remembrance to cozen,
And having obtained a New Trial of Time,
Shout in hopes of a kindlier dozen.

~Thomas Hood

Happy New Year, Everyone!

A Touch Of Love

Must, bid the Morn awake!
Sad Winter now declines,
Each bird doth choose a mate;
This day's Saint Valentine's.
For that good bishop's sake
Get up and let us see
What beauty it shall be
That Fortune us assigns.
~Michael Drayton

I'd give all wealth that years have piled,
The slow result of Life's decay,
To be once more a little child
For one bright summer day.

~Lewis Carroll, "Solitude"

New Beginnings in the New World

Congratulations to Americans on their newest President. Wish them all the best!

I am actually jealous...if only we had one Indian politician so young and so charismatic.

Kudos to the man for managing to win over a people so diverse and so outspoken!

Here's to new beginnings

For last year's words belong to last year's language
And next year's words await another voice.
And to make an end is to make a beginning.

~T.S. Eliot, "Little Gidding"
