Ding Dong Tolls The Bell
– By Ruby Daruwalla
Ding dong tolls the bell,
With its chime, the year 2017 fell.
The whole world tried to pick it up, and reinstate it once more on the Map,
But it laughed and scoffed screaming, “I wait for no man!
Time is my master, and I will not wait for your plan.
I stayed with you for 12 Monthsm
But you did nothing except for stunts.
I am off to No-Man’s Land, never to return,
But I am ringing in 2018 with Jupiter and Saturn.”
Dear 2017, I have learnt my lesson,
I assure you I will make 2018 full of Fashion,
Ringing in love, Hard work and help to all.
Being ready to assure all at the future call,
Making my life meaningful and bold,
Bowing to Lord Time and turning it into Gold
My New Year Wish!
-By Farida H. Doctor
My New Year (2018) wish, is the same as before,
I do not have just one wish, but four,
Two flats and two brides, for my two sons,
My sons are no longer, the little ones.
Both my sons are educated and have a good job,
Seeing them unmarried, makes me sob,
If my four wishes, are granted this year
My eyes will not shed, a drop of tear,
After I am granted, my wishes four, I will have, two wishes more
Two grandchildren – A grandchild each by each son,
I know, grand children are a lot of fun!
