A Blessing for the New Year from Jean, Va, Rain and Dan at SheVille.org
May your walls be sturdy, your lintel secure,
your hearth be aglow now, where love can endure.
As your table’s complete with knife, fork and spoon,
the cook so content, she whistles a tune
So, strength to your household, your family and friends.
May you rest there inside, as day comes to end.
May your friends be close by, not having to earn
and your door have a lock you don’t need to turn.
Your path be of int’rest with valleys sublime,
no rockslide nor insult as you make the climb.
May you be well-padded when you trip and fall
with someone to catch you should you have to call.
So strength to your household your family and friends,
may you live so content ’til you reach journey’s end.
Your road not too rocky, your toil not too long,
your path lined with lilacs, your heart filled with song.
