RING out, wild bells, to the wild sky, The flying cloud, the frosty light: The year is dying in the nightRing out, wild bells, and let him die.
Ring out the old, ring in the new — Ring, happy bells, across the snow; The year is going, let him go; Ring out the false, ring in the true.
Ring out the grief that saps the mind, For those that here we see no more; Ring out the feud of rich and poor, Ring in redress for all mankind.
Ring out a slowly dying cause,
And ancient forms of party strife; Ring in the nobler modes of life, With sweeter manners, purer laws.
Ring out the want, the care, the sin, The faithless coldness of the times:
Ring out, ring out my mournful rhymes,
But ring the fuller minstrel in.
Ring out false pride in place and blood,
The civic slander and the spite: Ring in the love of truth and right,
Ring in the common love of good.
Ring out old shapes of foul disease, Ring out the narrowing lust of gold;
Ring out the thousand wars of
Ring in the thousand years of peace.
Ring in the valiant man and free,
The larger heart, the kindlier hand; Ring out the darkness of the land,
Ring in the Christ that is to be. TENNYSON.
I GOT me flowers to strew Thy way; I got me boughs off many a tree; But thou wast up by break of day, And brought'st Thy sweets along with Thee.
The sun arising in the east. Though he give light, and the east perfume;
If they should offer to contest
Can there be any day but this, Though many suns to shine endeavor?
We count three hundred, - but we miss:
There is but one, and that one ever. HERBERT.
PATRIOTIC. HISTORIC. -POLITICAL.

Who in Elysian bowers the blessed seats do keep,
