Love is the only gold
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
Authority forgets a dying king
For I dipped into the future, far as human eye could see, Saw the vision of the world, and all the wonder that would be
A man had given all other bliss, And all his worldly worth for this, To waste his whole heart in one kiss Upon her perfect lips
Oh yet we trust that somehow good will be the final goal of ill!
Woman is the lesser man, and all thy passions, matched with mine, Are as moonlight unto sunlight, and as water unto wine.
