A BLOGGY NEW YEAR!
Of course it's egocentric! That we all admit.
But it's a pleasant pastime, so I don't mind a bit.
My Family think I'm dotty, my Friends could not care less,
And yet it gives me hours and hours of harmless happiness.
Once my poetry was private, not because I am shy,
But because nobody cared for it! That was the reason why!
But now I'm part of a great world-wide community of 'me',
Other like-minded poets who find Blogging sets them free;
Free to find an audience, a transient one it's true,
But a group of people in Cyberspace who write the way we do.
So a Bloggy New Year to all of us! Some people paint or jog
Or swim or sew or deep-sea-fish!
As for me
NEW YEAR WISHES
'Tis the season of goodwill
(And I would wish no person ill)
So I send the hope that the New Year
May fill you both with real good cheer
So may you prosper in every way
And continue with your blog each day

We have kept in touch over the years, off and on, and I was delighted to receive this New Year wish in rhyme.
