"150" handwritten in graphite at top right margin.

Poster printed in black and brown ink on cream paper. A brown Triskelion symbol appears at top center above the poem: "I am the grey whale of dawn / as / I am the breath upon the sea, / making endless waves, shaping lands. / Respect this mystery. / I am the leaping doe of knowledge / as / I am the murmur of the bellows, / whispering for fire, summoning light. / Respect this mystery. / I am the silent raven of sleep / as / I am the dark sod / that was once your ancestors' flesh. / Respect this mystery. / I am the sudden butterfly of life / as / I am the night blossoming of the stars, / and more, / and more. / Rejoice in these / mysteries." An image of a whale appears below the poem. Further down on the page is printed "This is a Gift Poem from Moe's Books in Celebration of the New Year."
