I am unused, unspotted and without blemish.
I stretch before you
three hundred and sixty-five days long.
In every hour of every day,
I will give you sixty minutes
that never have known the use of Man.
It remains only for you to fill them
with love, joy, hope and charity.
I am the New Year.
I am here but once.
Take hold of me and live.
