Edgar Lee Masters (1868–1950).  Spoon River Anthology.  1916.

221. J. Milton Miles


WHENEVER the Presbyterian bell 
Was rung by itself, I knew it as the Presbyterian bell. 
But when its sound was mingled 
With the sound of the Methodist, the Christian, 
The Baptist and the Congregational,         5
I could no longer distinguish it, 
Nor any one from the others, or either of them. 
And as many voices called to me in life 
Marvel not that I could not tell 
The true from the false,  10
Nor even, at last, the voice that I should have known.
