Edgar Allan Poe

The Bells – A Collaboration

The bells! — ah, the bells! The little silver bells! How fairy-like a melody there floats From their throats. — From their merry little throats — From the silver, tinkling throats Of the bells, bells, bells — Of the bells! The bells! — ah, the bells! The heavy iron bells! How horrible a monody there floats From their throats — From their deep-toned throats — From their melancholy throats! How I shudder at the notes Of the bells, bells, bells — Of the bells!
