ON A SILVER
Though it will proceed to mark off relentlessly the days of our
lives, the New Year comes in as a smiling friend. Inexorably it will
note the end of each passing day, but with the next dawn it will just as
inexorably give us a new one--fresh, unlived, 24 hours of opportunity.
So comes smiling Nineteen Fifty-six, giving us 366 clean new days
to use before the earth turns again. Into eternity have all other days
gone with their sorrows and joys. Here's the brand new year--all
ours on a silver platter. The question is, for each of us, what will
we do with it?
