Ring out, wild bells, to the wild sky….,

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.

— Alfred Lord Tennyson

I see you hovering near,

a demarcation of change,

but before you descend,

before another year smolders

to an end with each spark

that falls in fireworks

all over the world, I set

aside some time to reflect

on where I have been

and where I am going —

some resolute suggestions

of possibility as we enter you,

2022, with the hope of a peace

that passes all understanding,

and the desire to reflect a God-

given grace to all who are thirsty.

—C.L. Fisher, December 2021
