Christmas Bells: Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

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!

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!’

∼ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow:

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, one of the “Fireside Poets,” wrote lyrical poems about history, mythology, and legend that were popular and widely translated, making him the most famous American of his day.

Paragraph On Christmas Festival

Christmas is an annual festival that falls on 25th December every year. Even though it is primarily the festival of Christians, but now-a-days it is celebrated by everyone irrespective of caste, creed, colour and religion. This is what makes this festival even more special. The festival spreads the lesson of love and is celebrated in the honour of the lord Jesus Christ. Jesus himself is the symbol of love and peace and thus the festival unites people beyond their caste and religion barriers. There are different ways of celebrating Christmas festival, but one thing that remains common everywhere is the decoration of Christmas tree which symbolizes growth and harmony and spreads the message of love and living in unity. It is typically a huge fir or pine tree decorated with lights, flowers, balloons, sweets, chocolates and gifts. The bushy tress signifies the everlasting bond between their followers and Lord Jesus.

People start their Christmas day by attending Church; they offer special services at the church, they wear new clothes, spend time with friends and family members and spend day in eating festive meals. People often exchange gifts and goodies, especially with children. Small children wait for the Santa Clause loaded with gifts and chocolates and share the same with them. Most of the private and public offices, banks, post offices, etc remain closed on Christmas Day.
