THE BELLS

BY:Edgar Allan Poe

Christmas bells

  • What a world of merriment their melody foretells!
  • From the jingling and the tinkling of the bells.
  • To the tintinnabulation that so musically wells.

Wedding bells

  • What a world of happiness their harmony foretells!
  • How they ring out their delight
  • To the turtle-dove that listens, while she gloats

Alarum bells

  • What a tale of terror now their turbulency tells!
  • How they scream out their affright.
  • In the clamor and the clangor of the bells!

Death bells

  • At the melancholy menace of their tone!
  • To the moaning and the groaning of the bells.
  • From the rust within their throats.
