chiming a little tune (of you)

Inspired by the phrase ‘I think the Canterbury bells are playing little tunes’, from the poem ‘Madonna of the Evening Flowers’ written by Amy Lowell.

This now comprises a part of The Linkages Project

I think
that I heard the bells

as you
brushed past

playing little
tinkling
riffs

as they touched

one
into
the next one
rang

and one
again

into another

ting
tong
tang

and as I listened
I believe I heard
a small tune
of you

yes

as I listened
I believe I heard them
sing
your name

ting

ting-a-ling

tang
tong
tang

and ting

ting

tang-a-lang tong

they sang your name
at least
that
is what I heard

the breeze
when I closed my eyes
was like
your fingers
wandering
through my hair

and as it ruffled me
I heard the bells . . .

ting tang
tang
tong

. . . call aloud
your name
