Recepe For A Happy New Year

Take twelve, fine, full-grown months,
see that these are thoroughly free
from all old memories of bitterness,
rancor, hate and jealousy;
cleanse them completely from
every clinging spite.


Pick off all specks of pettiness and littleness;
in short , see that these months are freed from all the past.
Have them as fresh and clean as when
they first came from the great storehouse of Time.

Cut these months into thirty or thirty-one equal parts.
This batch will keep for just one year.
Do not attempt to make up the whole batch at one time,
but prepare one day at a time, as follows:

Into each day put twelve parts of faith,
eleven of patience,
ten of courage,
nine of tolerance,
eight of hope,
seven of fidelity,
six of kindness,
five of work,
four of rest,
three of generosity,
two of meditation and prayer,
and one well-selected resolution.


Put in about a teaspoonful of good spirits,
a dash of fun, a pinch of folly, a sprinkling of play
and a heaping cupful of good humor.

Pour in lots of love and mix with a vigor.
Cook thoroughly in a fervent heat;
garnish with a few smiles and a sprig of joy;
then serve with quietness, unselfishness, and cheerfulness,
and a Happy New Year is certain.
