Christmas Bells Ring Out!

Merry Christmas Amaretto Community!

Here we are nearing the end of another year. It is on this blessid day that I’d like to share the 1863 poem, “Christmas Bells”, by American poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. The poem speaks of despair that is overcome by the bells ringing out a renewed hope for peace among men. It is this new hope for the new year that I wish for you all.

I heard the bells on Christmas Day
Their old, familiar carols play,
and wild and sweet
The words repeat
Of peace on earth, good-will to men!

And thought how, as the day had come,
The belfries of all Christendom
Had rolled along
The unbroken song
Of peace on earth, good-will to men!

Till ringing, singing on its way,
The world revolved from night to day,
A voice, a chime,
A chant sublime
Of peace on earth, good-will to men!

And in despair I bowed my head;
“There is no peace on earth,” I said;
“For hate is strong,
And mocks the song
Of peace on earth, good-will to men!”

Then pealed the bells more loud and deep:
“God is not dead, nor doth He sleep;
The Wrong shall fail,
The Right prevail,
With peace on earth, good-will to men.”

Don’t forget, Amaretto has Christmas Bells too! These beautiful eyes passed from the 2015 Holiday Edition – Martha Cratchit.

May you all be blessed! Happy Holidays & Happy Breeding!
