Our New Year’s Wish

‘Twas the week before New Year’s
and all through the land
the stars all aligned
as to some cosmic plan.

With robust economies
in all jurisdictions,
every household had plenty;
there was no sign of friction.

Good health prevailed.
No disease could find purchase.
Young and old glowed with life;
no new illness did surface.

World leaders sought only
what lifted their populace,
and with those needier
shared skills and their surplus.

None coveted land
beyond their own borders.
In place of wars,
reigned unprecedented order.

Folks the world over
respected each other.
Treated each as they wished,
and as sister or brother.

Peace and serenity
were everyone’s right.
Within every heart,
love was alight.

*          *          *          *

Immersed in this world,
even just for a minute,
we wish you the calm,
quiet joy that’s within it.
