Call out rude bells! for midnight skies;
to autumn rain, to falling leaves;
to what’s been lost to what we grieve
Call out! let truths succeed their lies.
Ring out the war, ring in the peace
ring for foe’s defeat; ring and never cease.
Today we are writing Quadrilles with Kim at dVerse. The word to use to compose a poem of 44 words is “bell”, and I could not stop thinking about Tennyson’s poem In Memoriam, [Ring out, wild bells] which is read every New Year in Sweden.
