Yes, ring out the old, the false, the grief, the feuds of rich & poor, false pride in place & blood. the civic slander & the spite, the narrowing lust for gold, the thousand wars of old [& ongoing & of new]
& yes, ring in the new, redress to all mankind, the nobler [the humane, the decent, the civil] modes of life, the love of truth & right, the thousand years of peace. the larger heart, the kindlier hand [all of which are] the Christ that is to be [& IT’S UP TO (&/OR DOWN TO) US ALL!].
A MERRY SOLSTICE SEASON & A HAPPIER NEW YEAR TO ALL!
