Diamonds Not Dust

A new year wakes,
its loom built for weaving.
Geese by the lakes,
like them time has wings for leaving.
Diamonds not dust,
clear copper not rust,
may you find,
life be kind.
On the bar stage,
sing to empty galleries,
yet in your mind know,
if only one hears your song,
and loves your melody,
however rough,
it is enough.

Word craft is old.
Verse the first tales told.
With your silver pan,
search the river for gold.
Empty handed in the market,
you may seek not what is sold,
but listen, out there in the air,
diamonds not dust,
clear copper not rust,
your eyes may see,
your hands may hold.
