Letter to the Editor: New Year's poem

Dear Editor: 

So here hath been dawning another new year!
Let's overflow it with an abundance of good news and good cheer
Let political crudeness stay in the past
And hate be replaced witha love that lasts
May peace and civility throughout our land
Abound and flourish in our country grand
Let's life our God in adoration
And pray He'll bless and guide our nation

Happy New Year all.
