Famous quotes containing the word bells:

    Now Lady Maisry is gone home,
    Made him a winding sheet,
    And at the back of merry Lincoln
    The dead corpse did her meet.

    And all the bells of merry Lincoln,
    Without men’s hands were rung,
    Unknown. Hugh of Lincoln (l. 61–66)

    The bells discuss the hour’s gradations,
    Dusty shelves hold prayers and proofs:
    Above, Chaldean constellations
    Sparkle over crowded roofs.
    Philip Larkin (1922–1986)

    These days of disinheritance, we feast
    On human heads. True, birds rebuild
    Old nests and there is blue in the woods.
    The church bells clap one night in the week.
    But that’s all done. It is what used to be....
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)
