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, Lord Tennyson 1809-92
I raise a mince pie (and a glass of fizz!) to you and yours and wish you all a very happy Christmas season and a glorious new year. Thank you all for reading my blog posts this year. You have no idea how very happy it has made me!
