Ring Out, Wild Bells by Alfred, Lord Tennyson

  1. 1. Ring Out, Wild Bells A.H.H. by Alfred, Lord Tennyson (1849)Ring out, wild bells, to the wild sky, Ring out the want, the care the sin, The flying cloud, the frosty light; The faithless coldness of the times; The year is dying in the night; Ring out, ring out my mournful rhymes,Ring out, wild bells, and let him die. But ring the fuller minstrel in.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, Ring out old shapes of foul disease, For those that here we see no more, Ring out the narrowing lust of gold; Ring out the feud of rich and poor, Ring out the thousand wars of old,Ring in redress to all mankind. Ring in the thousand years of peace.Ring out a slowly dying cause, Ring in the valiant man and free, And ancient forms of party strife; The larger heart, the kindlier hand; Ring in the nobler modes of life, Ring out the darkenss of the land,With sweeter manners, purer laws. Ring in the lucia that is to be. ©Rana Babac | rana.babac@gmail.com
