Does This Ring a Bell?

We have no bats
In our belfry

Because we have
No bell tower—

So we have to make do
With what we have

To do without, even if it does
Sound crazy.


  1. To make do and to do without sound crazy... to those who have never been forced to do those things.

    "When they pull on the bells, the/poor come piling in..."

  2. Tom,

    Marvelous series of comments following the Creeley poem--thanks for sending the link my way.
