Ring out, wild bells!

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 the old, ring in the new,
Ring, happy bells, across the snow:
The year is going, let him go;
Ring out the false, ring in the true.
From In Memoriam (ring out, wild bells)

Dear Paula,
Wishing you a Happy New Year! Stay warm tonight! Did you hear? We are supposed to have a beautiful display in the heavens tonight, with Venus and the crescent moon, right after sunset. Then shortly after Jupiter and Mercury will be visible. Forgive me, I love star gazing...
