New Years Celebration

Everyone’s up late

Watching that ball

Slowly shrink on its pole

Out in Times Square,

Or just live on TV.

Oh, what a thrilling feeling,

Knowing a “new” year is near.

Only seconds away,

The possibilities are endless

For this next year

In the human timeline.



The ball lowers,

Closer and closer the “new” year creeps.



The ball finally touches down,

And everyone yells:


See ya 2016,

Nice to meet ya 2017.

Oh, how excited we are

Now that the new year is finally here.
