Villanelle Of Spring Bells

Rating: 3.3
Bells in the town alight with spring
converse, with a concordance of new airs
make clear the fresh and ancient sound they sing.

People emerge from winter to hear them ring,
children glitter with mischief and the blind man hears
bells in the town alight with spring.

Even he on his eyes feels the caressing
finger of Persephone, and her voice escaped from tears
make clear the fresh and ancient sound they sing.

A villanelle which lingers in the mind long after spring has gone. It is appealing to be 'in the town alight with spring'.

A well constructed villanelle that beautifully captures spring in all of its sumptuous glory.

I cannot believe this poem is rated so low, from the wonderful first lines Bells in the town alight with spring converse, with a concordance of new airs make clear the fresh and ancient sound they sing. To beautiful content lines like 'Bird feels the enchantment of his wing' and 'warble the praise of Time, for he can bring' to the final stanza which speaks volume with All evil men intent on evil thing falter, for in their cold unready ears bells in the town alight with spring make clear the fresh and ancient sound they sing. This is a call to honour nature and spring, to refrain from evil and war, this poem is worthy of being read between the lines.10+++
