  1. Morning birdsong has been momentarily interrupted by the sound of human affairs (these could be the bells of a christening, wedding or funeral service) highlighting how transitory our time on earth is. It is sufficiently open to invite different emotional responses from the reader, depending on why he/she imagines those bells are ringing but, for me, it all comes down to our fleeting passage here and how nature has been long before man and will continue to exist – if we don’t manage to blow up the planet, that is! Such a lot of thought provoked by just three lines.
