image of robin sat
on a branch holding a ribbon
and draped over branch
on which are words:
A HAPPY
NEW YEAR
TO YOU

 
 
 
 
A BLITHE AND JOYOUS WELCOME
TO THE BERRIES AND THE LEAVES,
THAT HANG ABOUT OUR HOUSEHOLD
WALLS IN DARK AND RUSTLING SHEAVES:
UP WITH THE HOLLY AND THE BAY,
SET LAUREL ON THE BOARD,
AND LET THE MISTLETOE LOOK DOWN
WHILE PLEDGING DRAUGHTS ARE POUR'D.

 
BUT THERE MUST BE SOME HALLOW'D
BLOOM TO GARLAND WITH THE REST,
ALL, ALL MUST BRING TOWARD THE WREATH
SOME FLOWERS IN THE BREAST;
FOR THOUGH GREEN BOUGHS MAY THICKLY
GRACE LOW ROOF OR PALACE DOME:
WARM HEARTS ALONE WILL TRULY SERVE
TO DECK A CHRISTMAS HOME.

There is an almost identical bookmark {sb1484} to the one above; the only difference being that in the image above the ribbon is held in the robin's beak and is draped over the branch. In the alternative version, the ribbon is in the robin's beak, and continues from the edge of it's wing.

The bookmark above is " NEW YEAR " and as such is a pair with " CHRISTMAS " {recorded as sb528 on this site}.
