Notecard 1918

Xmas 1918-19.

Hearty Greetings from Mr. & Mrs. James Holmes.

Ring out, wild bells, to the wild sky,
The flying cloud, the frosty light:
The year is dying in the night;
Ring out, wild bells, and let him die.

Ring out old shapes of foul disease;
Ring out the narrowing lust of gold;
Ring out the thousand wars of old,
Ring in the thousand years of peace.

Ring in the valiant man and free,
The larger heart, the kindlier hand;
Ring out the darkness of the land,
Ring in the Christ that is to be.

“Ruapehu,”
Havelock Road,
Hastings, H.B.,
New Zealand
