Happy New Year



Comments

Residue sing Residue, the water and the wine,
Seven bright gold wires and the trumpets doth shine

Here comes the maiden with gold on her toe;
Open the West gate and let the Old Year go.

Here comes the maiden with gold on her shoe;
Open the South gate and let the New Year through.

Here comes the maiden with gold on her chin;
Open the East gate and let the New Year in.

Here comes the maiden with gold in her eye;
Open the North gate and let the Old Year by.

Trad., provided by Greer Gilman
Residue sing Residue

Now this is delightfully obscure, and invites speculation.
"Delightfully obscure" is a good description of that lady.
