Poetry: “The sound of metal”

Certain things just fascinate me, okay?

***~***~***~***

The sound of metal

 

Clinging, clanging

Anvil rings

Forming steel into a blade

 

Ding, dong, booming

Church bells sound

Calling people to the mass

 

Shiing, shiing, clashing

Swords that meet

On a bloody battle field

 

Bong, dong, gonging

Temple gong

Solemn monks attending prayer

 

Thumbing, clanging

Factory floor

People diligently at work

 

Jingle, jingle, ching-a-ling

Pretty bells

Draft horse pulling on a sleigh

 

Fanfare, lilting

Orchestra

Music flowing through the air

 

Sound of metal

In the air

Mankind’s friend for millennia
