To the night of before;

I recall their songs

Of church bells,

Ringing enormous gongs.


Across the streets

They would carol

As if to be

The ear’s apparel.


As time went on

We learned to ignore

Thus, sounds of bells

Ceased to awe.


Sounds of cars,

Trucks and rain,

Sound it their place

For an ear’s, sustained.


But alas the bells

Continued to ring

With church-goers;

To them, they sing.


If you sit quietly,

Quiet your tongue

You can still hear

The bell’s mighty song.
