Default Free-for-all at the Translation Board

I posted a loose translation of a Happy New Year poem on the Translation Board, here. Feel free to post your own versions of it, if you like. It's eight lines of French octosyllabe, which I turned into ballad meter, but it could just as well be turned into a pair of limericks. Come on over and take a stab.

A Good New Year

A good New Year to everything,
The seas, the trees, the world.
A good New Year to stuff in spring
That Winter keeps tight furled.

A good New Year to young and old.
I greet you with delight.
Both those who think Iím solid gold
And those who think Iím shite.
