Fletching
The Bells of Fletching
Anonymous
 
THE FLETCHING bells, with silver chime,
  Come softened o’er the distant shore;
Though I have heard them many a time,
  They never sang so sweet before.
 
A silence rests upon the hill,        5
  A listening awe pervades the air;
The very flowers are shut and still,
  And bowed as if in prayer.
