Review of The Passing of the Year by Robert Service

The Passing of the Year by Robert Service (b. 1874) was offered by Poets.org's Poem-A-Day on December 30, 2012.  It is a simple, rhyming poem about the sense of loss as the old year passes with hints of the sense of hope as the new year comes.  Old school auld lang syne.  Light up your pipe and sit by the fire when you read this one.
