         ♫upon this lovely january morn♫

                            a debut saltation for 2024  
   
              “I like the dreams of the future better than the history  
                                of the past.”—Thomas Jefferson
 
   
upon this lovely january morn,  
              o how my heart, intrepid in its pulse,  
                            keeps vigil, as the fledgling year is born,  
                                          while earth's nerves, in her afterbirth, convulse!  
   
                                          she sucks her first breath from the virgin wind  
                            stirring the trees, whose whispers burst in song  
              to see the blushing picture of the kind  
new day, for whose fresh innocence i long.  
   
her vibrant leap invades my thirsting arms,  
              the evening and first morn of her debut  
                            imposing, on my breast, their infant charms,  
                                          366 our day-count rendezvous.  
   
                                          bird music blends the nous with naked airs  
                            whose embering shall fan the flames of june  
              when, fully sated by wild love affairs,  
i seal my loyalty with one last tune.  
   
too soon, december melts from me again,  
              her graveside wet with tears and drunk with wine;  
                            i shall recover, free from yearlong pain,  
                                          when january morn blooms once more mine.
