The old year out, the new one in.

2012 is about to begin.

What will it bring, what will it hold?

Have no regrets, we are told.

We hope for patience, and pray for peace.

A time for all the wars to cease.

Let’s make amends for all things past,

The new years coming hard and fast.

So grasp the nettle with both hands,

Time to make your new year plans.

Show respect, be kind to all,

And wait to see what will befall.
