Melody Bells

by donnadiann

Melody Bells

Ringing bells, chiming bells; sing a tune--
sounds so sweet from joyous notes were hewn.
Lifting hearts with rhythmic elation;
melodies bringing the senses to sedation.

Ring-a-ting on this Christmas Day
Ting-a-ling, ting, ting, on a sleigh
Chime in with voices crisp and high,
and as the bells ring--ring, we sigh.

Through icy air our cherry cheeks glow
from listening to the metal ting of high and low;
church bells, sleigh bells, children ringing too.
Carolers ringing of Christ's birth, all hope brand new.
