Lang Syne

by Brian Francis

The bell has rung for yesterday.
Its time has passed, its sun has set,
memories have begun to fade.
Tomorrow’s promise intrigues
calling us on, to conquer the day,
to feel the sun upon our face,
to remember the here and now,
living with every measure of grace.

A healthy, optimistic approach, Brian. Thanks for this.

Brian, your lovely poem captures the essence of the midnight song sung so many millions of times over the years, but it also places us in the now open facing the future. I really love this piece. Thanks my friend.
