New Year Benison

May this New Year

Bring at your doorstep

Peace, prosperity and grace

To tide over the bars you held

Unable to cross and clench

As one distressed year passes away

A new one floats ahead

Flying across the sky on high

The Dove sails silently ahead

Holding a twig of the Olive branch

In its tiny beak

To spread good tidings all around

 The disastrous world we see


May the spirit of god’s blessings in the New Year fill your hearts with joy and gratitude

Keeping aside all cares and worries

To look beyond and enjoy
