silver bells quotes - 10 of
Silver bells, silver bells,
It's Christmas time in the city.
Hear the sledges with the bells--
You whig emblem, you woman chaser,
why do you dance over the wide lawn tonight ...
Slowly, silently, now the moon
Walks the night in her silver shoon;
A harvest mouse goes scampering by,
With silver claws and silver eye; ...
Then pealed the bells more loud and deep:
"God is not dead; nor doth He sleep; ...
I heard the bells, on Christmas Day,
Their old, familiar carols play, ...
On this I ponder where'er I wander,
And thus grow fonder, sweet Cork, of thee; With thy bells of Shandon,
With deep affection and recollection
I often think of the Shandon bells,
While the stars that oversprinkle
All the heavens, seem to twinkle ...
