Ring in a New Year


Ring 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, happy bells, across the snow;
The year is going, let him go;
Ring out the false, ring in the true.

Alfred Tennyson

(Photo by Fun. Usually, I like to write my own poems for photos appearing here. However, when I saw this photo all that came to mind were these lines from Tennyson's "Ring Out, Wild Bells."

Wishing everyone a safe and lovely New Year.)
