Every Month Is A New Year

(excerpt)

THE YEAR TURNS

We choose the date.

From the earth’s movement,

from the moon’s phases,

these clocks and calendars

we create.

Together

in parks and squares,

in temples and houses–

watching

the year

turn,

we

celebrate.

 

TURNING THE YEAR

Celebrate!

We

turn

the year,

watching

in temples and houses,

in parks and squares.

Together

we create

these clocks and calendars

from the moon’s phases,

from the earth’s movement.

We choose the date.
