How Still The Bells

for Voice and Piano

duration 1'

Composed for: Kimball Wheeler

First Page of Score

  How still the Bells in Steeples stand
Till swollen with the Sky
They leap upon their silver Feet
In frantic Melody!                              (1865)

Lest this be Heaven indeed
An Obstacle is given
That always gauges a Degree
Between Ourself and Heaven.             (1865)

                                              Emily Dickinson
