Christmas Bells - Henry Wadsworth Longfellow FULL AUDIO BOOK ENGLISH



"I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day" is a Christmas carol based on the 1863 poem "Christmas Bells" by American poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. More information on Wikipedia.

I was keeping this video so I can find the Great Audio Books account against. They've uploaded songs the LibriVox public domain library onto YouTube. Several accounts have done this.

Look for this poem as a Christmas Carol by artists such as Elvis Presley and the Jordonaires or the Carpenters available via Amazon's digital store: I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day. You will find several free versions for Amazon Prime members to listen to.


I heard the bells on Christmas Day
Their old, familiar carols play,


and wild and sweet
The words repeat
Of peace on earth, good-will to men!
And thought how, as the day had come,
The belfries of all Christendom


Had rolled along
The unbroken song
Of peace on earth, good-will to men!
Till ringing, singing on its way,
The world revolved from night to day,


A voice, a chime,
A chant sublime
Of peace on earth, good-will to men!
Then from each black, accursed mouth
The cannon thundered in the South,


And with the sound
The carols drowned
Of peace on earth, good-will to men!
It was as if an earthquake rent
The hearth-stones of a continent,


And made forlorn
The households born
Of peace on earth, good-will to men!
And in despair I bowed my head;
"There is no peace on earth," I said;


"For hate is strong,
And mocks the song
Of peace on earth, good-will to men!"
Then pealed the bells more loud and deep:
"God is not dead, nor doth He sleep;


The Wrong shall fail,
The Right prevail,
With peace on earth, good-will to men."

Extreme photo cropping

Update... the video has been removed since this post was first written...
The ideas discussed in this video brought to mind one mistake I see photographers making when they're selling their photos on custom products in the Zazzle marketplace. There can be a tendency of new (and some experienced) shopkeepers to want to showcasing their entire photo on the custom products available at Zazzle rather than fill the design area available.

Below is an example of what a rounded corner mouse pad would look like if I fit the photo to the mousepad. It would have large white borders.



Below is what the mouse pad looks like when the image fills the entire design area.

Cropping, even extreme cropping, can be our friend. Cropping off some of the Lake Tahoe shoreline doesn't take away from the subject of this photo. We can still see the blue water and shoreline. But, large white borders at the top and bottom definitely distracts…
