Whispering Bells

The bells that peal and that we hear,
Peal different each and every ear.
A subtle difference in each guide
Even those of the mornings tide.

Sometimes they sound a nightingale,
Sweet and soft o'er the air they sail.
Unique are those the wake up bells
The evening ones seem sound a knell.

Then there are those that carry dross,
They ring of flesh and bone and loss.
And those are not the ones that heal.
Although they peal with flagrant zeal.

Some peal phantoms, ridding hell
Some surf angels guiding well.
Some so sweet could swell a tear,
Some to some would whisper fear.

Where some can rage in toll and maul,
Others in bittersweet just call.
Some cleave your heart or do repair
And some ring pain you cannot bear.

The bells that peal and we can hear.
Peal different each and every ear.

Sy,
I'm gonna put some kind of a flag - or maybe a bell on every one of your postings - So they stay at the top!!!...
