Wednesday Metre - On New Year's Day


On New Year's Day
Silence falls
For that brief moment
The ring-road quietens
The constant roar
Ceases
On New Year's Day

On New Year's Day
Despite the news
The bad and the good
The death and the hope
The ring-road quietens
The constant driving
Pauses
On New Year's Day

On New Year's Day
Like no other
The birds sing louder
The birds sing longer
The ring-road quietens
Only snow can replicate
Silence
Like New Year's Day
