The turning of the year

The lights go out
at the turning of the year,
everything and nothing changes
with the striking resolution of twelve.
The rain abated for our walk home,
stars and fireworks perforated the sky
with showers of colour
and the crazy assault of percussion.
The warmth of bed in the early hours
a welcome retreat before
the earnest new beginning
and love
that never ended.
