A Humbling Thing

On the church belfry to where i am near
The tolling of the funeral bell i do hear
To proclaim to all of human mortality
A similar bell will one day ring for me
For all of us there is a last night and day
'For whom the bell tolls' as said by Hemingway
The funeral bell in the chapel nearby
It's tolling echoes to the calm mid day sky
For some male or female a final farewell
Though he or she will not hear the toll of the bell
That reminds all who hear it including you and i
That like all other mortals we are born to die
The tolling of the funeral bell unmelodious though clear
Is such a humbling thing for the ego to hear.
