Poem for the New Year by Peter Rosegger



A bit more of peace and a bit less debate, 

a bit more of kindness and a bit less of hate, 
a bit more of love and forget jealousy, 
and more of the truth - now that sets us free!

Not so much of strife but of peace to pursue, 
not so much of I but a bit more of You, 
not fear nor despondence but more enterprise 
and strength to take action - now that would be wise!

No sadness and darkness but light let us show, 
no burning desire but a joyful let-go, 
with many more flowers to brighten the fate,
and not just on graveyards - for then it's too late!
