Ring out, wild bells...

 

 

 

 


 

 

 

 

Theres nothing, said Toby, more regular in its coming round than dinner-time, and nothing less regular in its coming round than dinner.

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.

Ring Out, Wild Bells

Alfred, Lord Tennyson
