Tick Tock

Iím writing this in a state of shock,
Watching the clockótick tock, tick tock,
Advancing, approaching, relentlessly,
A brand new year; Oh, can it be?

The calendar says the same thing, too;
Time races, vanishes for me; Boo hoo!
No, wait! If time flies, Iím having fun!
A year of fun! Itís gone! Itís done!

I now embrace the blur of time,
Because it simply means that Iím
Too busy with pleasure, joy, delight
To mourn the passing daysí swift flight.

So Iím wishing you fast, happy days,
Pleasuring you in myriad ways,
Filled with happiness and cheer,
Oh Happy, Happy Bright New Year!

By Joanna Fuchs

The New Yearís Eve Party

The new year is coming; the party is near.
Iím sure looking forward to lots of good cheer.
Iíll be all dressed up in my snazziest best,
So I wonít disappear in the crowd like the rest.

I rap on the door and it opens to screams;
There are several guys hanging from high ceiling beams.
The guy in the lampshade looks ready to go,
As the girl on his shoulders shouts, "Giddy-up Joe!"

I walk right on in to be one of the throng,
And they yell out my name while they bang a brass gong.
We laugh and we frolic, we dance and we sing,
(Is that my grandmother out there on the swing?)

This party is great, and the New Year looks bright.
Well, thatís how I dreamed it, while sleeping last night.
Iím thinking about you and wish you were here,
So Iím sending this poem to say Happy New Year!

By Karl and Joanna Fuchs
