The Bells

Edgar Allan Poe

Christmas Bells

"Hear the sledges with the bells- Silver bells"

"How they twinkle, twinkle, twinkle,

In the icy air of night ! "

Wedding Bells

"Hear the mellow wedding bells,

Golden Bells ! "

"What a world of happiness their harmony foretells ! "

Fire/Alarm Bells

"What a tale of terror now their turbulency tells ! "

"By the sinking or the swelling in the anger of the bells "

Death Bells

" They are ghouls "

" In the silence of the night,

How we shiver with affright "
