"Alfred, Lord Tennyson is considered the most representative poet of the Victorian Age in England, and many of his works characterize the conflict between the Christian faith and the beginnings of the scientific revolution. The death of his sister's fiancé, Arthur Henry Hallam, at the age of 22 plunged Tennyson into profound shock and a lifelong struggle between faith and doubt. "Ring Out, Wild Bells," generally considered a New Year's hymn, is taken from the 106th Canto of In Memoriam, Tennyson's monumental elegy to Hallam that was published in 1850, the same year that he was appointed Poet Laureate."

|A duck walked into a pub and
ordered a pint of beer and a ham sandwich.
The bartender looked at him and said, "Hang on! You're a duck."
"I see your eyes are working," replied the duck.
"And you can talk!" exclaimed the bartender.
"I see your ears are working, too," said the duck. "Now if you don't mind, may I have my beer and my sandwich please?"
"Certainly, sorry about that," said the bartender as he poured the duck a pint. "It's just that we don't get many ducks in this pub. What are you doing around this way?"
"I'm working on the building site across the road," explained the duck. "I'm a plasterer."
The flabbergasted bartender could not believe the duck and wanted to learn more, but took the hint when the duck pulled out a newspaper from his bag and proceeded to read it.
So, the duck read his paper, drank his beer, ate his sandwich, bid the barman good day, and left.
The same thing happened for two weeks.
Then one day the circus came to town.
The ringmaster came into the pub for a pint and the bartender said to him, "You're with the circus, aren't you? Well, I know this duck that could be just brilliant in your circus. He talks, drinks beer, eats sandwiches, reads the newspaper, and everything!"
"Sounds marvelous," said the ringmaster, handing over his business card. "Get him to give me a call."
So the next day when the duck came into the pub the bartender sayid, "Hey, Mr. Duck, I reckon I can line you up with a top job, paying really good money."
"I'm always looking for the next job," said the duck. "Where is it?"
"At the circus," said the bartender.
"The circus?" repeated the duck.
"That's right," replied the bartender.
"The circus?" the duck asked again. "With the big TENT?"
"Yeah!" the bartender replied.
"With all the animals who live in CAGES, and performers who live in CARAVANS?" said the duck.
"Of course," the bartender replied.
"And the tent has CANVAS sides and a big canvas roof with a hole in the middle?" persisted the duck.
"That's right!" said the bartender.
The duck shook his head in amazement, and said: "What would they want with a plasterer???"

Ring Out, Wild Bells
Music by Crawford Gates (b. 29 Dec 1921), 1948
Words by Alfred, Lord Tennyson (06 Aug 1809 - 06 Oct 1892), 1850
1. Ring out,
wild bells, to the wild sky,
The flying cloud, the frosty light:
The year is dying in the night;
Ring out, wild bells, and let him die.
2. Ring out the old, ring in the new,
Ring, happy bells, across the snow;
The year is going, let him go;
Ring out the false, ring in the true.
3. Ring out the grief that saps the mind,
For those that here we see no more;
Ring out the feud of rich and poor,
Ring in redress to all mankind.
4. Ring out a slowly dying cause,
And ancient forms of party strife;
Ring in the nobler modes of life,
With sweeter manners, purer laws.
5. Ring out
the want, the care, the sin,
The faithless coldness of the times;
Ring out, ring out my mournful rhymes,
But ring the fuller minstrel in.
6. Ring out false pride in place and blood.
The civic slander and the spite;
Ring in the love of truth and right,
Ring in the common love of good.
7. Ring out old shapes of foul disease,
Ring out the narrowing lust of gold;
Ring out the thousand wars of old,
Ring in the thousand years of peace.
8. Ring in the valiant man and free,
The larger heart, the kindlier hand;
Ring out the darkness of the land,
Ring in the Christ that is to be.
