NEW YEARS POEMS: “This Year Is Yours” by Alfred Lord Tennyson

  This Year Is Yours   God built and launched this year for you; Upon the bridge you stand; It’s your ship, aye, your own ship, And you are in command. Just what the twelve months’ trip will do Rests wholly, solely, friend, with you. Your logbook kept from day to day My friend, what…
