A Child's Own Book of Verse II by  Ada M. Skinner


 

 

THE 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.
