New Year

Christina Reihill

And now the letting-go

Old thoughts, old dreams, old ways

As winter wraps another year

I leave those hope filled days

The love that was, the love that is

The love that seeks new names

Where are the lamps of midnight lambing

Where are the grasses grazed

Wet days, long nights, the drag of plod and on

Wet days, long nights, the pull of loss and gone

Another year, another song, another layer of feeling

Bring on the death, bring on the birth,

bring on the sun of healing...
