“New Year’s Day – Muse Day”, a copyrighted post, was written for my WordPress blog called Always Growing by Jan in Covington, Louisiana
Today is Garden Blogger’s Muse Day, day to post a poem relating to gardening , nature or whatever strikes you.
Thanks to Sweet Home and Garden Chicago for starting Garden Bloggers’ Muse Day.
Best wishes to everyone for a healthy and prosperous new year.
“Another fresh new year is here . . .
Another year to live!
To banish worry, doubt, and fear,
To love and laugh and give!
This bright new year is given me
To live each day with zest . . .
To daily grow and try to be
My highest and my best!
I have the opportunity
Once more to right some wrongs,
To pray for peace, to plant a tree,
And sing more joyful songs!”
-William Arthur Ward
