The excerpt represents the core issue or deciding factor on which you must meditate, and is drawn from The Complete Poems of Longfellow by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow:|
Unfinished must remain!
I heard the bells on Christmas Day
Their old, familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet

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
