Descriptive Poems: II. Nature and Art
“Those evening bells”
Thomas Moore (1779–1852)
 
THOSE evening bells! those evening bells!
How many a tale their music tells
Of youth, and home, and that sweet time
When last I heard their soothing chime!
 
Those joyous hours are passed away;        5
And many a heart that then was gay
Within the tomb now darkly dwells,
And hears no more those evening bells.
 
And so ’t will be when I am gone,—
That tuneful peal will still ring on;        10
While other bards shall walk these dells,
And sing your praise, sweet evening bells.
