The Bells by Edgar Allan Poe & Illus by Anna Marie Magagna

Excerpt from: The Bells

Hear the sledges with the bells--
Silver bells!
What a world of merriment their melody foretells!
How they tinkle, tinkle, tinkle,
In the icy air of night!
Wile the stars, that oversprinkle
All the heavens, seem to twinkle
With a crystalline delight;
Keeping time, time, time,
In a sort of Runic fhyme,
To the tintinnabulation that so musically wells
From the bells, bells, bells, bells, 
Bells, bells, bells--
From the jingling and tinkling of the bells.

                                                           --Edgar Allan Poe
