  • Looking Ahead

    From the Omaha Daily Bee, January 1, 1915. By S. E. Kiser.

    A year is gone forever,
        But out beyond us lies
    A year for brave endeavor
        And splendid enterprise
    Where honors are awaiting
        The worthy and the wise.

    There shall be love and mating,
        And truth shall still be good;
    There shall be less of hating
        And more of Brotherhood,
    And right shall be more clearly
        And fairly understood.

    The new year shall not merely
        Bring added age to those
    Who value virtue dearly
        And strive as Vice’s foes,
    But Justice shall more nearly
        Yield honest men repose.
