My new year’s wish for you
is handsomely portrayed
upon this rosy wall
in sprightly accolade:
may dancing pigs attend you,
adventures fill your cup,
may loved ones sit beside you
wherever you sip and sup,
may your plates be heaped with kindness,
your spirit taste no hurt,
may laughter season your days,
may there always be dessert.
Wishing you a very happy new year, dear reader,
with muse and chocolate ever near.
Thank you for all encouragement and enlightenment in 2019!
And special new year’s thanks also
to photographer S.W. Berg for this splendid wall!
