Voices in the Mist

--Description: Tennyson A., 19th C, Christmas, Christianity


The time draws near the birth of Christ: 
The moon is hid; the night is still; 
The Christmas bells from hill to hill 
Answer each other in the mist. 

Four voices of four hamlets round, 
From far and near, on mead and moor, 
Swell out and fail, as if a door 
Were shut between me and the sound: 

Each voice four changes on the wind,
That now dilate, and now decrease, 
Peace and goodwill, goodwill and peace, 
Peace and goodwill, to all mankind
 

Lord Alfred Tennyson


--Did You Know: Queen Victoria was an ardent admirer of Tennyson's work, and in 1884 created him Baron Tennyson.
