Fresh Chapter.

When words fail me I revert to using poems or quotes from literature to explain how I'm feeling. There's about an hour left till 2013 begins, and like most this year has brought me both happiness and sadness. The start of 2012 wasn't the best but I can say by the end of the year I am happy and my life is on the path that I want it to be on. 2013 WILL be my year and I look forward to doing all the things I couldn't do in 2012 and achieving some if not most of my goals. Have a happy new year. God bless x

'I leant upon a coppice gate
When Frost was spectre-gray,
And Winter's dregs made desolate
The weakening eye of day
The tangled bine-stems scored the sky
Like strings of broken lyres,
And all mankind that haunted nigh
Had sought their household fires.

The land's sharp features seemed to be
The Century's corpse outleant,
His crypt the cloudy canopy,
The wind his death-lament.
The ancient pulse of germ and birth
Was shrunken hard and dry,
And every spirit upon earth
Seemed fervourless as I.

At once a voice arose among
The bleak twigs overhead
In a full-hearted evensong
Of joy illimited;
An aged thrush, frail, gaunt, and small,
In blast-beruffled plume,
Had chosen thus to fling his soul
Upon the growing gloom.

So little cause for carolings
Of such ecstatic sound
Was written on terrestrial things
Afar or nigh around,
That I could think there trembled through
His happy good-night air
Some blessed Hope, whereof he knew
And I was unaware.'
