It's pages are blank.
We are going to put words on them ourselves.
The book is called Opportunity
And its first chapter is
New Year's Day.
Edith Lovejoy Pierce
Glory to God in highest heaven,
Who unto man His Son hath given;
While angels sing with tender mirth,
A glad new year to all the earth.
One resolution I have made,
and try always to keep,
To rise above the little things.
A happy New Year!
Grant that I
May bring no tear to any eye
When this New Year in time shall end
Let it be said
I've played the friend,
Have lived and loved and laboured here,
And made of it a happy year.
Cheers to a New Year
and another chance for us to get it right.
