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.
