7:30 BELLS: The Bells are Moving

The bells are moving, 
bells tucked into boxes,
the bells are moving to the country, 
to the river, 
bells soon to ring
at last, at last to ring
with tall trees,
     with red-tailed hawks
            with the roar and hum of river and wind

I will unpack my heart
that has waited so long,
I will unpack the bells,
     wait for it--
hear that wild clamor and clang?
hear my heart roar
