A Christmas Bell poem........




A poem about Christmas Bells......


When Christmas Bells are swinging above the fields of snow,

We hear sweet voices ringing from lands of long ago,

And etched on vacant places

Are half-forgotten faces

Of friends we used to cherish,

And loves we used to know.

-Ella Wheeler Wilcox-

My grandmother collected little bells and I hadn't thought of that for years. It's so nice when someone's post sparks a sweet memory, isn't it?

Oh, I liked this. I love bells! I especially loved it when I was young and the church bells would play hymns and carols at set times during the day that you could hear all over town.
