Poem of the Week: "Burning the Old Year," by Naomi Shihab Nye

I thought this poem was a perfect fit for ringing in a new year. I love the language of this poem, how the sounds of the words create an image of fire on the tongue. I'm always in awe of poets who can use language this effectively. I hope you'll agree that this is a pretty cool poem. Enjoy!
