RING OUT

     As clappers strike, the tones spread
     To all the places where man might tread.
     Saying to him, "Come~Draw Nigh",
     Ring out wild bells to the wild sky.


     People everywhere hearken to the beat
     Whether by car, or bus, or walking feet.
     All come forth to answer the cry,
     Ring out wild bells to the wild sky.


     Joyfully they sing in the chapel aloud
     A single voice now composed by the crowd.
     Even those whose soul is unwilling to try,
     Ring out wild bells to the wild sky.


     But what of those who sing no more?
     Whose life is now at that distant shore.
     Can we hear them again, if we try?
     Ring out wild bells to the wild sky.


     Here, only the earthy tones of a single bell
     Mark their passing with each somber knell.
     Yet, they sing to Him with the souls on high,
     Ring out wild bells to the wild sky.


     When we finally meet them across that ravine
     We shall join voices and again together sing
     The praises of Him, the Lord Most High ~
     Ring out wild bells to the wild sky!

    Daniel, when I got to the verse about the souls on the "other shore," I got chills. This is a remarkable interpretation of Dr. Ram's theme. I have been struggling with this one, but you excelled brilliantly and gave so much meaning to the sound of the bells. I'm predicting first place for this entry -- I have read several others and some are good, but this is unique. On a totally different level! Love, Carolyn
