September 1—115 days until Christmas—School Bells and Christmas Bells

School bells, like this one, DSCN0352
are waiting to be rung. From the Atlantic to the Pacific they will call boys and girls to class.
They remind me of other bells, the Christmas kind and I was inspired to write this poem.

BELL

The word bell rings
sprinkling silver tunes—
ting a ling, a ling.
Its graceful dome
won’t complain
when struck, just sings
ting-a-ling,-a-ling-a ling.

Remember these knitted bells from last year?
