Bell of Night

 

I heard a bell ring in the night;
It came from deep below.
I’m sure it’s source was from a dream
that had for me something to show.

I’ve been awake and slept again
a few times since this has passed,
and I am dismayed about the fact
that these things go by so fast.

I write two lines and fall asleep,
while the clouds blow overhead.
Tomorrow I will wake up and take
the bell of night beyond my bed.

One thought on “Bell of Night

  1. Rhyme scheme compliments the division between being awake and asleep. The image of a bell is well-chosen as it has a connotation of clarity, purity, inspiration, and/or transcendence. I wish that I had thought of it. Good job.
