Christmas 2019, 
a celebration of goodwill,
Silent night along with the first Noel,
Thirty-first December,
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And never brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And auld lang syne?
Happy New year we all Cheered
Best of health for two thousand and twenty,

Cheers For The New Year

We cheer the New Year at twelve a.m.
Twirling noise makers and blowing ticklers     
And make resolutions we plan to engram.

And party away wearing silly tams
Singing Auld Lang Syne with our sweethearts
And cheer...Read More

After Christmas time
festivness lingers.
A new year comes as
this year’s final eve
sparkles with fireworks.

Sing Auld Lang Syne
Toast the New Year.
Give somebody
a midnight kiss!

But what if
magic drifts
down to you?

The month’s
swan song. . .

Commencement writing this poem

Soon Auld Lang Syne
sung bidding goodbye
adieu two thousand nineteen
uttered from every gal and guy
transfixing living mortals
with good cheer well nigh,
while awesome pyrotechnics
light up night sky.

All across world wide web

Christmas comes and goes.
We’ll take down the tree,
store decorations,
dine on leftovers,
and swear to diet.

On that last day,
will we make some
Sing “Auld Lang Syne?

Hold hands? Pray?
Laugh and cry?

a toast?

Just like in days of auld lang syne,
He is filled with benevolent wishes!
He is as poignant as the bottom line,
And much dearer than summer's riches!

A blessed love, unlike any other;
His are the diamond dewdrop blooms!
A holy birth, to a sainted...Read More

Winter revels
Old Lang Syne meaningfully with gusto
Hogmanay celebrations in full swing
Revellers savour whiskeys afterglow
Watching square dancers doing highland fling

Laden snow clouds have accumulated 
Inky heavens to sheer mountain ski top
As frozen misty hailstones enshrouded
onwards from midnight chimes, it did not stop

More You, Less Me
Whenever I look-see,
And catch sight of the rain,
In me I start to see,
A begun romantic bane.

Love can start out vague,
It hits you in unknowing,
In lang syne 'twas blue,
Now hindsight 'twas grey.

It can come unexpected,
It can thrive unintended,
It can seed as...Read More

The seasons
Sweat pours 
from your face and body
Hot days and nights
Sometimes make it unbearable

Sand runs through
your fingers and toes
It feels so nice

Cold water from the pool
feels so good!
The salty ocean  and the clear blue lake
Brings instant relief to a very...Read More

It was 25 December,
And a snug-warm Christmas day.
The temp was over 50,
The weather: bright, not gray.

But a sadness on this Sunday fair
Perplexed me...what was wrong?
As I left the cape with Judy,
Our intention?...visit mom.

I come to visit again, silent bane,
to steal away your life with no remorse.
In stealth, I stalk to take away your gain,

She freezes on a cracked plastic patio chair.
Morse code sleet sings “Auld Lang Syne.”
Coffee steam travels
north with piercing gusts
toward Times Square.
A teaspoon, overly used and rarely polished,
sleeps frostbitten on the table outside.
Planet earth rotates toward a new year
as she whispers...Read More

The Year Turns
I sense the stillness of the hour,
A weighted silence over-powers,
I hear the ticker tock, 
This heavy void of empty space
As a true embrace,
There was a comfort in this isolation
Now there is invasion

I hear bombast cheers and chinks as glasses...Read More

Lyrics to Auld Lang Syne
Jim Scott, inspired
Gerald Dillenbeck, deranged

May all who venture forth today
be welcome 'ere we go,
And those who risk a gesture kind
reap all that we would sow.

For love will reach across this time
disarming anger here.
Let all misunderstanding rest

A new year
The carcasses of rockets litter grass
dark hours advanced since midnight bells have chimed
and revellers stood watching seconds pass
to cheer and kiss to strains of 'Auld Lang Syne'.
Outside, from morbid black to pleasing blue
the day pulls off the sheets, the low...Read More
