At home.

A bit of Longfellow to start the Christmas weekend-

“I heard the bells on Christmas Day

Their old, familiar carols play, and wild and sweet, the words repeat

Of peace on Earth, goodwill 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, goodwill 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, goodwill to men.

Then peeled 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, goodwill to men.”

-Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, 1807-1882

Jeff - Looks to me like the only thing you’re missing is some of that white stuff you were mumbling about earlier! I enjoyed Longfellow immensely…
