For bells are the voice of the church ;
“ Is, then, the old faith dead," They have tones that touch and search
They say, “and in its stead The hearts of young and old ;
Is some new faith proclaimed, One sound to all, yet each
That we are forced to remain Lends a meaning to their speech,
Naked to sun and rain, And the meaning is manifold.
Unsheltered and ashamed ? 1 The last poem written by Mr. Longfellow.
