Resonance Through Time
I wonder if those same bells still ring each day
Or whether they have ceased to play.
When I was young, similar bells chimed
From the church not far down the hill
Only a block away.
It is doubtful they would chime nowadays
More than once or twice each day,
No longer upon the hour.
Will the bells continue to ring across the globe?
Will I have absorbed their vibrations from
The passage of time right after
I will have been meeting you in the dandelions?
Bells possess resonance
They are symbols
They're ringing somewhere now
I've appreciated the sound of them
I've continuously enjoyed their chatter
Music is emanating from bells
They've been changing my world,
Keeping this young mind entertained
Bells stimulated our brains
Bells were creators of waves
That were changing the quality of life
After we had accepted them
We had been living our lives in wondrous
Ignorance of the rhythmical sounds of nature
That will fill our spirits until we will be longing for more
The chimes will have sounded by noon,
A few hours after they will have been finalizing
The wishes of our ancestors.
To partake in the absorption of bell sounds
Invites our playful spirits
To return to childhood once again with
The ancestors who are now in the wind
Their gentleness forever ascending
Their love unending
