THE OLD YEAR AND THE NEW.
What though last year be past and gone,
Why should we grieve or mourn about it ? As good a year is now begun,
And better too, let no one doubt it.
'Tis New-Year's morn; why should we part!
Why not enjoy what heaven has sent us ? Let wine expand the social heart,
Let friends, and mirth, and wine content us.
War's rude alarms disturb'd last year;
Our country bled and wept around us; But this each honest heart shall cheer,
And peace and plenty shall surround us.
