Annie's Mailbox for 1/1/2018
Dear Readers: Happy New Year. We hope 2013 will be the best year ever for each and every one of you. May you be blessed with good health, close family, kind friends, love and laughter. We hope you will make this the year you vow to be kinder and more compassionate so you can help the world become a better place in which to live.
In honor of the day, here is poem written by William Cullen Bryant in 1859:
"A Song for New Year's Eve"
Stay yet, my friends, a moment stay_--
Stay till the good old year,

Shakes hands, and leaves us here.
Oh stay, oh stay,
One little hour, and then away.
The year, whose hopes were high and strong,
