And wild and sweet

    A beautiful poem for a beautiful season. The Christmas bells will disappoint the wrongs and the rights will prevail.

    An excellent poem with an emphasis on repeating poetic lines. Longfellow is certainly one of the great classical poets. A wonderful read. : -)

    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! " .....//// beautiful loyal expression
