I will not, though I would, resolve,
As the New Year’s Eve comes on,
To do, not do, review, revolve
On the past year, how it has gone,
Taking not all, but still enough
(Seeing I had not much to lose)
Of what, for all my falling off, 
Might have been mine, as then, to use:
    But if I cast off heaviness,
    This is my burden, none the less.
