Alternate Author Name(s): Meynell, Wilfrid, Mrs.; Thompson, Alice Christina
Subject(s): Bells

Brief, on a flying night,
From the shaken tower,
A flock of bells take flight.
And go with the hour.

Like birds from the cote to the gales,
Abrupt -- O hark!
A fleet of bells set sails,
And go to the dark.

Sudden the cold airs swing.
Alone, aloud,
A verse of bells takes wing
And flies with the cloud.
