A Year of Poems – Day 185

The bell sits at the bottom now
It lost its perch above the ground
So it resides below the floor
In a place where it will ring no more
Weddings, funerals, or births
Simply waiting for new earth
To fill the broken cracks
And forge it smooth as a sheet of wax
For every bell will toll again
With the clarity of a bright blue lake.
