Wishing You a Happy New Year, A Calendar for the New Year, 1883
Inside this little card is a verse about the four seasons of the year, and a one-page calendar for 1883.
Front: Wishing You a Happy New Year. Sun comes moon comes Time slips away. Back: A Calendar for the New Year Sun sets moon sets The year's grown gray. Inside: Wishing You a Year of Joy and Blessing Spring, with her change of sun and shower, And streams released from Winter's chain, And blooming [?] bud, and opening flower, And greenly growing grain. And Summer's shade and sunshine warm And raninbows o'er her hilltops bowed, And voices in her rising storm, God speaking from his cloud! And Autumn's fruits and clustering sheaves And soft, warm days of golden light, The glory of her forest leaves And harvest moon at night, And Winter with her leafless groves [?] And prisoned stream and drifting snow, The brilliance of her heaven above, And of her heart below. J.G. Whittier
