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.
