Just a challenge for myself. I have written an A to Z acrostic poem earlier, but this one is related to New Year.

Happy New Year to all my friends!

Another new year is on the way

Better days will be here to stay

Come on friends, don’t be dismayed

Do what is right, come what may

Everyday we shall be feeling gay

Family and friends make our days

Good health, good wealth, oh, hurray!

Hope everything turns out just your way

If ever you need help, don’t feel shy to say

Just don’t ask me for money, as high interest to pay

Keep smiling, people like to see a happy face

Ladies, may you be beautiful as a sweet bouquet

Men, may you be successful and become a towkay

Never say never, you will as long as you have faith

Oh, so many good stuff, what more can I say?

People I know here, make Triond a better place

Quitting Triond I may regret, so I think I shall stay

Right now I just have many good words to convey

Sending my good wishes, is this crazy poem okay?

Thank you very much, I know you will say okay, another hurray!

Understanding between friends, friendship won’t fade away

Very soon we will be a year older than yesterday

Wish you all the best in the new year and also any day

XO a bottle, let’s drink, otherwise plain water can replace

Yam Seng!  Yam Seng!  Drink for a good year, Yay, Yay!

Zzzz, oh, I’m tired after composing this acrostic poem, okay, okay

Ealier version of Acrostic A to Z :


You may read again my last year end poems, as the meaning and wishes won’t expire :

    Thanks friends for your comments, in advance!
    By the way “Yam Seng” means “Bottms up” in Cantonese (a Chinese dialect, though not belongs to mine, but I can speak also).

    Yam Seng!
    Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!

    The A-Z was very clever. Happy New Year.

  • Sharif Ishnin on Dec 23, 2010

    Towkay means boss
    Yam Seng means Cheers
    Losing you would be a great loss
    Many here will be in tears
    Happy New Year StarP.
    Time to bring out your favorite kopi.^_^

    This is a great poem. I would have never been able to come up with words for Q, X, and Z. I wish you a happy new year as well.

  • Starpisces on Dec 23, 2010

    Thanks friends for your comments.

    @Sharif – good poem, well done.
    Think about it, should be yum seng instead of yam seng right? haha, I think both acceptable, depends on how we pronounce it.
    Yes, it means “cheers!”
