In this classic poem, Tennyson spends the first four verses lamenting the year's passing as if it were an old and dear friend on his death bed. Happy New Year, folks! Experiences The past year leaves you with experiences to learn Mistakes you made and you felt burned But as the New Year approaches move forward and find That you will reach success if you keep positive thoughts in your mind.
Always be firm and never get fear, Cause God gives us a brand New Year!
Some took an optimistic view while, for others, it seems to have only led to despair. The melody for this New Years song is the in the public domain, and in my hymn book, there is no copyright notice on the harmony parts and accompaniment, although it is always your responsibility to check that out.
Cheer up a bit, my dear friend And please be happy!
Auld Lang Syne is both a song and a poemafter all, songs are poetry set to music, right? And yet, the tune we know today isn't quite the same thing that Robert Burns had in mind when he wrote it over two centuries ago.
The melody has changed and a few of the words have been updated and others have not to meet modern tongues.
