A ram’s horn signals to a chosen people

A high holy day

While in the minaret a human voice

Calls the faithful to pray

But among England’s villages and fields

It is the sound of clappers on bronze

With patterned peals

Bats and starlings take flight from the parish tower

Till the campanologists have finished their hour


Padre
