A few days after New Years, but sometimes that does not stop people.
Something relevant for right now, yes.
Born of my own memories of a 4th of July many years ago.
Something for the first day of the new year, crisp as newly fallen snow.
When this is posted it will be a new year already in some parts of the world, so to you and everyone who is still some hours away I wish you all a Happy New Year!
I hope you will find this poem appropriate for the day.
