Not quite ready to embrace the new year, not me, not yet. All too quickly, the tree is down, the presents opened and the greeting cards from friends become a package from the IRS. Sorry, I'm still enjoying Christmas... stubbornly, I guess.
Holding hands, we stared at the blinking lights on the tree,
Though Christmas is gone, it’s not for you or for me.
The glowing angel on the treetop, her wings spread out so wide,
Seemed to pine for a tune ‘bout the Christmastide.
Though we searched and we searched,
For the angelic snow queen.
All we could find, to really set the right scene
Was an auld lang syne tune sung high up and clean,
It’s a auld lang syne song to welcome 2015!
Happy New Year, Y’all... I guess!
