bells quotes - 10 of
Toll on, thou passing bell;
Ring out my doleful knell;
I heard the bell tolled on thy burial day,
I saw the hearse that bore thee slow away, ...
The bells, I say, the bells break down their tower;
And swing I know not where.
With a dead sound on the final stroke of nine.
He stood, and heard the steeple
Sprinkle the quarters on the morning town. ...
The bells they sound on Bredon,
And still the steeples hum. ...
But listen, up the road, something gulps, the church spire Opens its eight bells out, skulls' mouths which will not tire
On this I ponder where'er I wander,
And thus grow fonder, sweet Cork, of thee; With thy bells of Shandon,
With deep affection and recollection
I often think of the Shandon bells,
The dead bell,
The dead bell. Somebody's done for.
