SHEEPBELLS, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Moonsweet the summer evening locks
Last Line: Where the woodlark sings.
Alternate Author Name(s): Blunden, Edmund
Subject(s): Bells

MOONSWEET the summer evening locks
The lips of babbling day:
Mournfully, most mournfully
Light dies away.

There the yew, the solitary,
Vaults a deeper melancholy,
As from distant bells
Chance music wells
From the browsing-bells.

Thus they dingle, thus they chime,
While the woodlark's dimpling rings
In the dim air climb;
In the dim and dewy loneness
Where the woodlark sings.
