Blue Monday: Snowman Ornament

IMG_9636
A smiling snowman brings extra cheer to a Christmas tree.
 
 

A little old man made of snow
Makes even the saddest eyes glow
When he cries out clear,
“O Happy New Year!”
We’re lucky to have him, you know?

Where in the new year
will I find a resting place—
beneath an old pine?
 
~~~ ~~~ ~~~
 
In my thoughtless state
not even new year’s prospects
can enlarge my soul.
 
~~~ ~~~ ~~~
 
too much alcohol
ushering in the new year—
my woozy footsteps
 
~~~ ~~~ ~~~
 
to the left and right
as the new year approaches
uptight suspicions
