New Year's Blessing
dream
evcelt
May the Powers bless to us the new year,
Never vouchsafed to us before;
May the Powers be blessed,
For they have given us this time.

May the Powers bless to us our eyes,
May our eyes bless all they see;
We will bless our neighbors,
May our neighbors bless us.

May the Powers give us clean hearts,
And keep us in the sight of their eyes;
May they bless to us all those we love,
And bless to us our homes and hearths.

- adapted by me from the "Carmina Gadelica"

ETA: Or, to quote Neil Gaiman:

"...I hope you will have a wonderful year, that you'll dream dangerously and outrageously, that you'll make something that didn't exist before you made it, that you will be loved and that you will be liked, and that you will have people to love and to like in return. And, most importantly (because I think there should be more kindness and more wisdom in the world right now), that you will, when you need to be, be wise, and that you will always be kind."

Happy New Year, everyone!
