Blogmas 30 – New year’s poems

Only two more days left of 2018. That sounds weird, right? It’s such a cliche, but time flies when you’re having fun. Although, I probably won’t do a Blogmas where I write every day again. It’s a lot of work! Especially since I didn’t really map out a content plan beforehand. Whoops!

Are you writing your greeting cards for New Year’s? To send out to your friends, family and colleagues? I usually send out cards around Christmastime but I have missed that window before and just made it New Year’s cards instead. It’s a two-week window, so that makes it a bit easier!

I thought I could make things a bit easier for you all by sharing 10 of my favourite short poems for New Year’s greeting cards! Enjoy.

  1. By Joanna Fuchs

Happy, happy New Year!
We wish you all the best,
Great work to reach your fondest goals,
And when you’re done, sweet rest.

We hope for your fulfillment,
Contentment, peace and more,
A brighter, better new year than
You’ve ever had before.

2. By Somya

With a new beginning and fresh start,
Full of inspiration and positive thoughts,
Let’s begin this year with an optimistic thought.

Gone are the days of regret and guilt,
Those rooms full of darkness.
It’s time to move with courage,
Full of confidence and hope.
Let’s begin this year with an optimistic thought.

3. By Sumira R. Arain

First day of the New Year.
It’s time to shine for a new day.
Forget your past,
Your sorrow, your pain.
New ideas are waiting ahead.
It’s time to recall all your memories,
Beautiful dreams that remain uncovered,
Painful parts of life when your heart gets crushed.
But don’t be afraid.
The future is in your hand.
Hold it in your hand.
Start your race,
A new journey,
That leads you to success.
You will rise again
You will shine again.
Happy New Year!

4. By Kate Summers

This New Year Poem is just for you
Be happy and live life through
Look forward to coming the days
May happiness be your way.

No matter what challenges you face
Find the good and you will find your place
Being optimistic is the way
To be successful every day!

The old year now away is fled,
The new year it is entered,
Then let us now our sins down-tread
And joyfully all appear.
Let’s merry be this holiday,
And let us now both sport and play,
Hang sorrow, let’s cast care away:
God send you a happy New Year!

6. By Catherine Pulsifer

Look at this coming year as a time to shine.
Stay away from negative people who constantly whine.
Surround yourself with people who share
And people who do the things that show they care.
The year will pass quickly and you will look back
And be happy to see the difference you made in lives that lack.

7. By Nicholas Gordon

Happiness depends on more than years.
All one’s moments gather to a wave
Passing in a rolling swell of tears,
Passions too immense to name or save.
Yet New Year’s is a crest on which to sing,
Now poised between the future and the past.
Each awaits what course the fates may bring,
Winds that never touch the things that last.
Years turn and turn with an hypnotic grace
Even as the depths of life lie still.
Although above one cannot silence face,
Remember that below the divers will.

Have you ever had the feeling
That everything is possible?
I’m sure that this year will bring you
Even the impossible!

Raise your glass for the last day of the old year,
And for the fortunate New year!

9. Author unknown

Another brand New Year is here,
Another year to live,
To forget all doubts and fears,
To laugh, to love and to give!
Happy New Year!

10. By Ella Wheeler

What can be said in New Year rhymes,
That’s not been said a thousand times?
The new years come, the old years go,
We know we dream, we dream we know.
We rise up laughing with the light,
We lie down weeping with the night.
We hug the world until it stings,
We curse it then and sigh for wings.
We live, we love, we woo, we wed,
We wreathe our brides, we sheet our dead.
We laugh, we weep, we hope, we fear,
And that’s the burden of the year.

Happy New Year,
