the chimes sound the hour

bells of all sizes

with ropes of fifty feet long or more

are they automated now?

just a very loud speaker

hidden inside the tower

visually they are still there

aesthetically as they ever were

they rise above the edifice

as brass as ever

I do not recognize the tune

are the bells playing a hymn

or are they merely a random

melody of chimes?

I used to live next door to a Methodist church.

across the small stream

the parking lot was the end of the street.

the chimes sounded the hour

a clock.
