Bells, hometown.

by Colm   Feb 25, 2017


Only once, with little acclaim to
notoriety, symbolism or fame will
the bells of my hometown ring
and sing with their enemies, the same -
At twilight hour, judgement day, when
the world has nothing left to say will
the fallen conquerors leave aside
their pride in self-existence, pray.

    Colm, I enjoyed the internal rhyme and imagery and symbolism of the hometown bells. Bells offer rejoice, but also, warnings - so when they 'sing with their enemies' this brings home hope that difference can be bridged for all.

    Question: Is this a known form of poetry?

    BTW - I am enjoying your POTF

    All the best.
