New Year's resolutions and good wishes really should be made in the Spring, when so much more seems possible than in January.
Here's one I love, from Maxine Kumin's poem, Magellan Street, 1974:
This is the year, in a kitchen
you brighten with pots of basil
and untidy mint, I see how
your life will open, will burst from
the maze in its walled in garden
and streak toward the horizon.
