" What shall we wish for? "
The Children say,
As they wait and long
For New Year's Day.
Oh, wish, little friends,
For gifts that last,
When toys are broken,
And bon-bons past.
Wish for cheerful hearts,
And willing feet;
Wish for gentle tongues,
And tempers sweet;
Wish for these, and find,
When months have rolled,
A happy New Year
Born of the Old.
