Roaming the byways of literature

End of the old year

The New Year approaches. I am spending it quietly at home with a couple of friends. If you’re going out partying I wish you a joyful and safe night with no hangover tomorrow.

I wrote this small poem years ago and had forgotten it.

Three leaves cling to the alder.
A distant siren wails
the last sorrow of the year.

Happy New Year to everyone.
