Hark the Bell Rings

Hark! the bell rings. Dusky clouds loom across the dale, Hark! the bell rings. To her veil of fog, ocean clings. Watered wind rising to the sail; A shadow wheels against the gale. Hark! the bell rings. Hark! the bell rings. Old town is bathed in the gloaming, Hark! the bell rings. Cradling birds the birch yonder swings; Once a jolly sailor, homing; To lay now, wearied from roaming. Hark! the bell rings. ~~ For Chris D. Aechtner's Contest : "Let The Masks Fall - The Many Reasons Behind It All" By gautami phookan

    wow, It's really too bad you didn't get it finished for the contest.This was AMAZINGLY good. If it had been entered with all the lines done up to code, I would say it could deserve a top place.

    No longer for the contest, nor any ashes , neither any bubbles o_O But still, I dedicate this to nette, for I really enjoyed writing this form. I removed that line later, since multiple rondelets too have just 2 rhyming patterns so can't call it that anymore...hahaha..

    I think I've told you at least 10 times how glad I am that you are posting again! (And yes, life is good!).

    Oh, I got up this morning and was wondering if you posted something new...I was right! My psychic connection to your laptop was correct...ah ha. Very classical writing style, Gauti. It's as tho these birds are vacationing in the birch hotel from a long winter's flight. Their song is filled with jubilation from completing their weary journey. One of ny favorite trees in Ohio is the River Birch. It is a relative of the white birch that so many around the world are familiar with. Stunning as it cascades over the edge of the river banks. :)
