twelve bells call to wake us up
three more send us back to sleep
the first days saw us give up our wings
in exchange for things we couldn’t keep
by your side I felt taller than any city
by your side I fell farther than any could see

twelve bells call to ring us in
that we may begin
write your name beside my own
in the new mud of spring
by your side I felt smaller than any sea crab
by your side I fell I slower and slower.
