There isn’t time, there isn’t time
To do the things I want to do,
With all the mountain-tops to climb,
And all the woods to wander through,
And all the seas to sail upon,
And everywhere there is to go,
And all the people, every one
Who lives upon the earth , to know.
To know a few, and do a few,
And then sit down and make a rhyme
About the rest I want to do.
I have been to 26 countries which is apparently 13% of the countries of the world – so many places to go to so little time this poem sums it up for me.
New Year Cheer
At the sound of the tolling midnight bell
a brand new year will begin.
Let’s raise our hopes in a confidant toast,
to the promise it ushers in.
May your battles be few, your pleasure many,
your wishes and dreams fulfilled.
May your confidence stand in the face of loss
and give you the strength to rebuild.
May peace of heart fill all your days
may serenity grace your soul.
May tranquil moments bless your life
and keep your spirit whole.
I am looking forward to posting here, not sure what it will be like or even how often I am sure it will wax and wane. I did my annual reflection last night but tried not to dwell on how the year had been rather look forward to 2009 with a brave heart and things to do. Exciting and not so exciting but hopefully some with serendipity.
