I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat

    Iambic tetrameter. Wonderfully written, flows nicely, and with a great message.
    These poets were the original “rappers”. “And wild and sweet, the words repeat”
    “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”
    It flows so smoothly that iambic pattern.

    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.' /// great writing; powerful Christmas poem penned

    'For hate is strong, and mocks the song
    Of peace on earth, good will to men.'.... //.... Very true. Evil forces are stronger today. Innocent voices of dissent are being suppressed..
