James Wood, comp.  Dictionary of Quotations.  1899.
 
M. W. Wood
 
  Let byganes be byganes, / Wha’s huffed at anither, / Dinna cloot the auld days / And the new anes thegither; / Wi’ the fauts and the failings / O’ past years be dune, / Wi a grip o’ fresh freen’ship, / A New-Year begin.  1
  Poor the raiment you may wear, / Scanty fare at best be thine; / Let the soul within be clothed / With a majesty divine.  2
  Think not, dream not that thou livest, / If thy hand doth idly lie, / If thy soul for ever longing, / Yearn but for the by and bye.  3
  Though great the force of little words, / Sped in an evil hour, / As great the might, and great the good, / Of one in Wisdom’s power.  4
