Bell Ringer

A sombre silence echoes around the silver staircase,

spiralling from stained glass down through the decades of steps and stone

to brown brick floors, walls batting every humbled sigh back and forth, above, below –

sombre silence echoes the mood of the church bell ringer –

the rope has broken.
