New era dawning,
New plans and challenges
Seem to abound.
Old friends estrangeAs priorities change
While lives rearrange and
New friendships are found.
New blazed directionsDiscover affections
So many selections
To batter about.
And I in my wisdomWill brave criticism
To choose from among them
And count them all down.
Forward projecting,Backward protecting,
Ever correcting to
Sight and to sound.
Laughing and weeping,Time crawling or creeping,
My feet on the ground.
