A NEW YEAR

January 1, 2018
Ring out false pride in place and blood,
The civic slander and the spite;
Ring in the love of truth and right,
 Ring in the common love of good.
    Ring out old shapes of foul disease;
   Ring out the narrowing lust of gold;
  Ring out the thousand wars of old,
      Ring in the thousand years of peace.

Alfred Tennyson
