J. C. Squire, ed.  A Book of Women’s Verse.  1921.
 
Chimes
By Alice Meynell (1847–1922)
 
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—O 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.
