    Happy Holidays!

    Diana Killian Icon





    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!

    Then from each black, accursed mouth
    The cannon thundered in the South,
    And with the sound
    The Carols drowned
    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!’

    Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

    1. Merry Christmas, Diana. And to all my fellow Good Girls (and to all our faithful posters and lurkers–luv ya)!

    2. For goodness sake. I had no idea that was a poem–even when I read it in my head it sounds like Johnny Cash!

      Hope your holidays were lovely, as I belatedly catch up with my blog-reading.
