Well Lane, Heswall (by DG Jones)
Now ne3ez þe Nw 3ere, and þe ny3t passez,
Þe day dryuez to þe derk, as Dry3tyn biddez
–from Sir Gawain and the Green Knight (eds. Tolkien/Gordon/Davis)
Now the New Year comes near and the night passes.
At heaven’s command the day presses hard on the darkness
—Translation by W. S. Merwin
May all your adventures be well chosen and your year always new!
