  Chiming For Christmas  

 

Whoso hears a chiming for Christmas at the nighest,
    Hears a sound like Angels chanting in their glee,
Hears a sound like palm-boughs waving in the highest,
    Hears a sound like ripple of a crystal sea.

Sweeter than a prayer-bell for a saint in dying,
    Sweeter than a death-bell for a saint at rest,
Music struck in Heaven with earth's faint replying,
    "Life is good, and death is good, for Christ is Best."

       - Christina G. Rossetti
