THOSE EVENING BELLS, by             Poet's Biography

Alternate Author Name(s): Little, Thomas
Subject(s): Bells; Grief; Music & Musicians; Sorrow; Sadness

THOSE evening bells! those evening bells!
How many a tale their music tells
Of youth, and home, and that sweet time
When last I heard their soothing chime!

Those joyous hours are passed away;
And many a heart that then was gay
Within the tomb now darkly dwells,
And hears no more those evening bells.

And so 't will be when I am gone, --
That tuneful peal will still ring on;
While other bards shall walk these dells,
And sing your praise, sweet evening bells.
