Made it! Away from home but managed to get a poem in a shop for IPYPIASM! See here for more poems in shops. This poem is an old one...

Happy new hope

Years have to start with hope, this is essential
We have to feel that good things are to come
A lack of hope can be most detrimental
It can stop New Year’s Eve from being fun.
No, seeing smiles ahead is fairly vital
We should see triumphs and tranquillity
We listen (hark) for fanfares by the skyful
Between them sighs contented, full and free.
We need to feel our hearts are in it with us
That hope has made it, somehow, through and through
Life’s switches may be always out to dim us
But we can think of ways to glow anew.
This New Year’s hopes might be the ones to make it
The outstretched hand - we see it, match it, take it

RF... years ago!

Awesome. I really like the line 'We listen (hark)...' as I love a bit of harking. Very, very nice, indeed. HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!

Hi everyone... managed that card placement whilst shopping for a NYE party (last minute!) whilst down in Leeds in Yorkshire.
Happy 2013 to you all!
