Death Bell

The old bell tolled

A dozen chimes into the crisp night air

As an old and weary knight let go his sword

He fell heavily against the base of a tree

Song filled the air

He had seen too much blood this eve

Even his own now slowly ebbed away from him

But a promise was kept to see another day

Louder now the singing

As another voice joins that of the knight

A shrouded figure holding time in his hands

Continues the tune as the knight fades away

Death sings alone

As another soul is added to those already given

And as the last chime of the old bell rings out

Silence falls where once battle, song and old bell tolled
