The Tenth day of Advent - Bells

Tenth day of Advent
"And all the bells on earth shall ring, on Christmas Day, on Christmas Day..."
(I Saw Three Ships Come Sailing In)

 From the "Festivals and Fairs" edition of the Fairy Gazettes, fairies ring in the May festival with a song that Girl Guides may remember: 

"White coral bells upon a slender stalk,
Lilies of the valley line my garden walk.
Oh how I wish  that I could hear them ring,
     That will only happen when the fairies sing."

  1. Oh I do like the idea of hearing blue bells ring on Christmas Day. Perhaps one just has to listen very carefully....
