Midnight Bells

By: Ponytail Goddess

Chiming, chiming,
midnight bells,
beginning a new day.

Trudging, trudging,
little child,
hearing what they say.

Singing, singing,
soft and sweet,
though the wind is cold.

Wishing, wishing,
of a home,
and warm greetings of old.

Hoping, hoping,
for a change,
that this day may bring.

Smiling, smiling,
full of joy,
hearing every single ring.

Going, going,
ever on,
awaiting the sun's warm ray.

Chiming, chiming,
midnight bells,
starting a wonderful day.
