New Year’s Day (poem)

The tree is stripped of ornaments

Wooden toys and bells and balls

All traces of the holiday are wrapped and put away

Melancholy music from A Winter Solstice plays

For one more night the tinsel and the lights will stay

Starry lamps that tint the walls

Will soon be last year’s sentiments.
