The Bells of St. Lalluwy (2020) – and a look back at ‘The Bells of St. Lalluwy (2019).

Sunday morning,

10:30 a.m.

and I can hear the bells,

thr bells of St. Lalluwy,

as their sound chimes

across the fields

that lay between us.

Unseen church,

I hear your call,

“Come to pray,

come one come all;

or just listen to my pealing sound

and pray at home;

for, there, I am also to be found.

‘The Bells of St. Lalluwy (2019)’

I can hear the bells of Menheniot

ringing out for prayer;

across the fields I hear the knells,

and, soon, I won’t be there.

I can hear the bells of Menheni

a-ringing in my ears;

they call the flock from off the land

to seek comfort for their fears.

I can hear the bells of Menhen

appealing all to come;

the faithful and the sinning soul,

the sentient and numb.

I can hear the bells of Men

though softer than before,

until at last,

the peals have passed,

and I hear the bells no more.

Take ‘me’ to Church?

Quite imposing really

Quite imposing really

I went to church once
The chaplain was a Charlie
I couldn’t take him seriously.
But, seriously
The vicar was vicarious –
They couldn’t afford a new one –
Or so my mate told me.
The deacon was a shining light
Or he may have been a beacon
And the priest was a veritable feast
Or had just eaten one
And when the psalm was sung
We all swayed in the breeze
Like palms
Take me to church?
I’d rather listen to the Hoosiers

PS I’m worried about Ray
PPS I know Hozier is not them
PPI? No thank you.
