What do the bells of All Saints say
On this cold spring day?
Is it “repent?”
Or a lament,
For a civilisation that is dying?
I can not say.
The above poem was inspired by me hearing the bells of All Saints Church, as I passed through the churchyard on the morning of Sunday 5th May 2019). You can find All Saints Upper Norwood here, http://www.allsaintsuppernorwood.co.uk/).
