Thanks to Priceless Joy for hosting FFftAW.
Lunar New Year, this January coming,
Falls on the twenty-eighth; each year changing.
Two-days short each month, calendar arranged,
Every now and then, extra month added some —
Years; sweeping out the bad luck, bring income —
Of good luck for the Rooster’s year; detained,
With bad luck being born in Rooster’s year same.
Chinese all celebrate — dragons welcome.
Say Rooster’s confident, hardworking, honest,
People’s person; then, firecrackers light —
Sky with brilliant red, ends old year; promises,
Year of luck, decorated scarlet; fond —
Kids gifted with cash; all enjoy the night,
Dragons, food, and firecrackers delight.
