A Poet's Feast

Joelle Renee Benoliel

Let this poem, written so long ago, enliven your spirit, in light of recent events and remember, "The wrong shall fail, The right prevail, With peace on earth, Good will towards men."

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1807-1882)

  Christmas Bells

   I HEARD the bells on Christmas Day

   Their old, familiar carols play,

       And wild and sweet

       The words repeat

   Of peace on earth, good-will to men!

   And thought how, as the day had come,

   The belfries of all Christendom

       Had rolled along

       The unbroken song

   Of peace on earth, good-will to men!

   Till ringing, singing on its way,

   The world revolved from night to day,

       A voice, a chime,

       A chant sublime

   Of peace on earth, good-will to men!

   Then from each black, accursed mouth

   The cannon thundered in the South,

       And with the sound

       The carols drowned

   Of peace on earth, good-will to men!

   It was as if an earthquake rent

   The hearth-stones of a continent,

       And made forlorn

       The households born

   Of peace on earth, good-will to men!

   And in despair I bowed my head;

   "There is no peace on earth," I said;

       "For hate is strong,

       And mocks the song

   Of peace on earth, good-will to men!"

   Then pealed the bells more loud and deep:

   "God is not dead, nor doth He sleep;

       The Wrong shall fail,

       The Right prevail,

   With peace on earth, good-will to men."
