Happy New Year

Written by: Deirdre Omaidin

This poem is the acrostic for Carol Browne's competition


Happy - that's those who laugh
Angry - that's those who frown
Pleasing - that's those who befriend
Pompous - that's those who look down.

Yearning for - that's those who have lost
Need - that's something we all feel
Emptiness - that's not sought after
Wealth - that's those who have a good deal.

Young at heart - that's to be cherished
Everyone deserves respect and care
A Happy New Year to each one of you
Rich in friendship and peace - be aware.
