Spotlight Poetry – Hear the Hurry of the Bells – A poem by Goff James

The image depicts a painting titled The Bell by the artist Luka Kapanadze. The work is a vibrant atmospheric semi-abstract expressionist painting and is an exploration of line, gesture, sound and colour. Multiple layers of black, orange, yellow, red, white and brown colours and shapes fuse one into the other providing depth and a sense of movement which gives the painting its dramatic intensity. The work supports the poem Hear the Hurry of the Bells written by the poet Goff James.

Hear the Hurry of the Bells by Goff James

Robed in hymns and psalms
Hear the hurry of the bells
How the faithful gather

Lessons read sermons preached
Hear the hurry of the bells
Prayers to heaven raised

Penance kneeling duly paid
Hear the hurry of the bells
Worldly blessings made

How the faithful gather
Hear the hurry of the bells
Robed in hymns and psalms
