On the eve of 2009

New Year

This night
of all the nights
is the year's last.
All, all
the other nights
are gone, are past...
After
the evening, with
its fading light,
put the lid
on the hour
and close it tight.
Close up
your tinavy eye;
close up the day.
Bid the old year
Goodbye,
and come away.

- Jean Kenward

Kate, what a great picture of the kids! And so much snow. Whew, I get cold just looking at it!
