Torre dell’Orologio Counting down to 2019




When the Clock Strikes 12 on New Year’s Eve, I’ll be in a very far-off land,I’ll read a few verses for you,and send my kindest thoughts with the sun’s warm rays …


★ Ring in Redress to All Mankind … ★

★ Ring in Redress to All Mankind … ★

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 2018 die.
Ring out the old, ring in the New,
Ring, happy bells, across the world;

Ring out the false, ring in the true.
Ring in redress to all mankind.
Ring in the nobler modes of life,
With sweeter manners, purer laws.

Ring out the darkness of the land,
Ring in the love of truth and right,

Ring in the valiant man and free,
The larger heart, the kindlier hand;

Ring out the thousand wars of old,
Ring in the thousand years of Peace –  ( Alfred, Lord Tennyson )


♥ May the Year ahead be full of Peace,Contentment & Joy ♥

Thanks kindly for all your visits & the Likes ☆ ♥ ♥


See you All again in 2019 – ♥ Love & Peace ♥

I’ll pay some flashing visits & leave my Likes before leaving for my holidays; in full action when I come back early January ♥ ♥ ♥


PS :The “Roman Holiday” film fans will probably recognize that this is the clock tower which could be seen from Joe Bradley’s window.Release date‎: ‎August 27, 1953; I was a baby then,but I enjoyed it some years ago when it was re-released on 16 July 2009.

  9. A breath of fresh air you are, Doda. I loved seeing the Roman Bell Tower and the beginning of the new year countdown with this exquisite poetry by Alfred Lord Tennyson. I’ve never read this poem before. Not only is it the perfect new year greeting, but they ring, just like the bells. Have a wonderful adventure in the far-off land, dear friend; and a new year filled with love and joy and health and more adventures.


  10. Happy Holidays. x😻💜🐾🐾🐾

  13. Hello, Doda, it’s lovely to ‘see’ you again. Whichever far away land you are in after New Year, I hope you have a wonderful time. The Tennyson poem is very meaningful and I, too, hope 2019 brings “Paece, Conentment and Joy” to the world.
