The Chiming of the Rhymes

T'was said the bell was in the rhyme
Of love that went the course of time
And echoed from the towers height
To sing the world of love's delight

And tower was the fantasy
Of what would be or not to be
A vision of a simple love
That rang from chamber walls above

The day he went to final rest
He woke in truth to his unrest
For from the place of life's depart
He heard the chiming of her heart

Beautiful, as always. I like the bells image.
Merry Christmas.

Elizabeth

 Nail to the mast her holy flag,
Set every threadbare sail-
And give her to the god of storms,
The lightning and the gale!

Elizabeth, my friend -
I like the cadence of this one.
The chimes on the tower in my town
ring out on the hour ...
I shall think of you each time
I hear their beautiful sounds.

Elizabeth,
This is exactly what I meant
And exactly what I sent.
There were no words between the lines,
The bells were clear in your define.
Why would I take offence
There was no dense pretence.
Love ya
Sy

 Don't ask me where I'm going, just listen when I'm gone and far away you'll hear me singing softly to the dawn.

Wonderfull sound, I could hear the bells chime.

 It's fantasy. But if it contains a piece of me doesn't that make it as real as I am?
