A New Year

It is begun –

place glass jewels in your ears,

 

wear your newest clothes

with silver bangles and amulets,

 

wrap your hair in bright scarves,

cover yourselves in flowing skirts and veils,

 

wrap a peacock feather around

the neck of your child,

 

carry him up high on his father’s shoulders,

hurry to the dance.
