I always find bell's quite intriguing, how they symbolise so many things - the sound so pure though - something you captured here well! nice work!
dang...really like that second couplet...mourn and morn and dying and born...
Great use of the metaphor and form ~Enjoyed it MZ~
What about Taco Bell?
lovely expression on bells.Happy New Year!
Such fun - Happy New Year
I hear you, and wish you a happy new year!
I, too, love the second couplet... very profound. Best to you and yours in 2012.
I love this and love bells too...excellent, Mama Zen.Happy New Year wishes for you!
Love This...how creative to state the different occasions for the toll of a bell
Just fantastic! What a way to ring in the New Year with a poem like this! :)
But of course, you have described bells as clearly as they ring out!
Bells are great! Happy New Year.
Lovely couplets. I've been messing around with a verse on bells. Now I wonder if I want to finish it. This was good.
Ring New Year's bells. I love bells too and think these couplets a fine write out of the year and a welcome to the new. I discovered a website about bells that I'll share with you here. I thought I might find it useful for a poem one day..but it's informative or at least it was for me.http://www.martinmdb.com/bells.htmlThanks again and happy new year!
A perfect coupling of meanings and motions, ringing out the old and bringing in the new. - Brendan
Very cool. Happy New Year!!!!!!
I can feel the rhythmic swing in this! (and FB always has such pithy comments!)
I read this as an essential truth. The final couplet is epigrammatic in its wit and wisdom.
yes--i say use that second couplet and write another one. keep it going!
Excellent word play, doll. :)~Shawna(rosemarymint.wordpress.com)
"a bell for the dying, a bell for the born"......I love it!
