Poem by Ella Wheeler Wilcox

New Year (Know this! there is nothing can harm you)

Know this! there is nothing can harm you
   If you are at peace with your soul.
Know this, and the knowledge shall arm you
   With courage and strength to the goal.
Your spirit shall break every fetter,
   And love shall cast out every fear.
And grander, and gladder, and better
   Shall be every added new year.

Ella Wheeler Wilcox
