Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  The New Poetry: An Anthology.  1917.
 
237. Chimes
 
By Alice Meynell
 
 
BRIEF on a flying night,
  From the shaken tower,
A flock of bells take flight,
  And go with the hour.
 
Like birds from the cote to the gales,        5
  Abrupt—oh, hark!—
A fleet of bells set sails,
  And go to the dark.
 
Sudden the cold airs swing:
  Alone, aloud,        10
A verse of bells takes wing
  And flies with the cloud.
