Goodbye twenty seventeen

Your final days, eclipsed

By bitter clouds of snow

Dancing, swirling about

Making us long for the warmth

Of a springtime shower, or

The glow of the sun against

The blue waters of the ocean

Blankets spread out, picnics

And Frisbee, kites flying

And castles built in the sands

Time slips by, again and again

Goodbye twenty seventeen

Memories of you fade quickly

As a new year brings promise

Of much brighter tomorrows
