The Bell House Tower

We saw a dim light upon top of the Bell House Tower a scream echoed out and then a dark shadow slipped by the light, in the midnight hour. What was that? I asked my friend, I don't know she said, but it sounded as if something has met it's end. The wind was blowing with such a strange howling and all the city lights were off making it dark for mysterious prowling. A loud, maddening laughter rang through the air and stood on our arms, every one of our hairs. We ran like crazy down the alley way and never looked back until the light of day. The next morning a crowd had gathered at the Bell House Tower and every one was shocked to see it was the bell ringer who rung the bell, hour upon hour. Not a sign made anyone sure of what happened, but we know what we heard in the midnight hour, mad laughter from upon top the Bell House Tower.

No matter where we had ever been, would return to Bell House Tower again and again; Might be late at night or near end of year, it could always be seen so crystal clear. Wonderful poem. Jim Horn

Hey Jim, that sounds awesome. Maybe we should have co-wrote this one. I like what you wrote. Maybe sometime we could re-write this one as co-writers. I think it would turn out great, ha, ha, ha. Thanks for the awesome comment on Bell House Tower. Hope you have a great day...Sharon :)
