Seven times, telling chimes entwined in air
Each ring interlaced in night’s tangled hair.
Vacant coin-faced moon’s advent coincides
Escalating peals to rise then subside.

Boundless muse abounds night’s darkened mind,
Each bell recounted a passage of time.
Lightly hushed lullaby resounds in prayer
Listens spellbound to wisdom’s aria.
Silence sleeps soundly.
