Hark the Bell Rings

Written by: gautami phookan

``
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.
