Excerpt from Ring Out, Wild Bells
Ing out, wild bells, to the wild sky, The ﬂying cloud, the frosty light: The year is dying in the night; Ring out, wild bells, and let him die.
Ring out the old, ring in the new, Ring out false pride in place and blood, Ring, happy bells, across the snow: The civic slander and the spite; The year is going, let him go Ring in the love of truth and right, Ring out the false, ring in the true. Ring in the common love of good.
Ring out the grief that saps the mind, For those that here we see no more; Ring out the feud of rich and poor.
