White Dove in Flight

Hooray! Hooray! It’s New Year’s Day
– By Kenn Nesbitt

Hooray! Hooray! It’s New Year’s Day!
The day we start anew.
So this year Iโ€™ve decided
To become a kangaroo!

Or maybe i will learn to fly,
Or how to walk through walls,
Or how to turn invisible,
Or surf on waterfalls.

I’ll make myself elastic
And Iโ€™ll teach myself to shrink.
I’ll turn into a liquid
And Iโ€™ll pour me down the sink.

I’ll visit other planets
And meet aliens galore.
I’ll travel to the distant past
And ride a dinosaur.

I’ve got so many wondrous plans.
I’m starting right away.
Yes, this will be the best year yet.
Hooray! It’s New Yearโ€™s Day!
