Peal the Bells

Incessantly it trods and plods
perpetual the pendulum

so long before the Abbey bells tolled
and told of hours passing     before
the ticks and tocks of clocks     or
shadows told of solstice Gods

no one to worship at its start
first it leapt from fiery heart    and
in its wake        our petty worlds
grow    then wither    and grow again   until
     at last    a violent end     as
time forgets     and races by

the kindest heart   left drowned in tears
and wrapped in gross deformity      yet
sheltered by cathedral walls in
disrepair as much as he

till Esmeralda's gentle hand   he knew
no love       just hate and scorn   but
like the brand from tempered flame
it's burning love that made him strong

so     like the edifice was he
    an ugly house that held God's love

Quasimodo's lonely heart     who'd
ring the bells    that silence hears

when     in the end he found her     dead
sacrificed his mortal life     to sleep
      with one who truly gave
the only love he'd ever known
