The Belltower's Tale



The belltower's tale has impassioned the soul
of the one whose strong hands restore history, whole,
forging ever and on through December's cold days
in the towering winterhues, dark blues and greys.

Climbing up through the structure of ancient intrigue,
each day rising early, soaking sunset's fatigue.
He's on top of his world and delightfully high,
for the belltower is beauty to my artist friend's eye.

As his vision unfolds, is reborn through his craft
with hard work, sweat and toolchest, sufficiently staffed,
he can proudly survey what his time, toil and sight
have so faithfully brought to his belltower tonight.

Dear LadyClaire

Appreciating the beauty around us is one of life's most delightful pleasures! We should all cultivate that 'eye'. This is fantastic, Claire!

Meadow,
Yor have opened a window to a wind of subtlety.
And its touch has shown pictures of subtle debris.
A facinating poem of thoughtful entwine.
A mixture of mystery roses and wine.
Love your stuff. Sy

Claire~
I'm intrigued by this piece.
I enjoyed the image of the
'artist of the belltower'.
Quite the intrigue.
