“I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day” is a Christmas carol based on the 1863 poem “Christmas Bells” by American poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. The song tells of the narrator’s despair, upon hearing Christmas bells, that “hate is strong and mocks the song of peace on earth, good will to men”. The carol concludes with the bells carrying renewed hope for peace among mankind.

Robert Frost- This is one. Of my favorite poems. My high school English teacher told me that this poem was about a doctor going to see his patients. Since my Daddy was a small town MD who made house calls and was always gone, this poem really "hit home". :)
