Another Year...

Another year has come and gone
and still here I am sitting
everything else seems to change,
but not my books and knitting

Perennial friends they are to me--
constant companions...waiting
for all that must be done to be done
but no more hesitating

This year I shall live for joy--
let the dust bunnies have their way
because at the end of this new year
I don't think I will say

"I wish I'd done more dishes
I wish I'd made more beds
I wish I'd left my knitting
and cleaned the house instead"

I don't think I will regret
the hours in books I spent
I don't think for love of laundry
I'll sing a last lament

But I know I'll wish each silent hour
spent in work and worry
had been filled with yarn and music
and hadn't gone in such a hurry

  1. Love it! I think I will replace my 'work and worry' this coming year with 'yarn and music' also! Thanks!
