The German clouds
want to rain
but just slide by.
Then bells 
from a modern steeple 
emit an ancient sound, 
warding off thunder 
and bringing the sun 
to glimmer on the river,
contained in stone walls. 
The willows 
still reach down
toward the common center 
of our worlds,
as they always will,
but now they are green.

-Robert L. Jackson III

Here is a link to a video of the bells that inspired this:
