Quote of the Day, 12/29/06: New Year Verses

To add to my Poetry Friday selection (see next post above), here are a few more verses appropriate for New Year's.

Alfred, Lord Tennyson
Ring out the old, ring in the new,
Ring, happy bells, across the snow:
The year is going, let him go;
Ring out the false, ring in the true.

T. S. Eliot
For last year's words belong to last year's language
And next year's words await another voice.
And to make an end is to make a beginning.

Martin Luther
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.

You used my favorite poet, Tennyson! I've been thinking of dragging out some of his poems for my blog at some point.
