‘This Bell’

this-bell-2

This hand-cut paper piece was made for the ‘Museum of Us’ exhibition at the Horse Hospital in London in 2004.

Reads:

‘This bell will ring when the leaves fall.

This bell will ring when you take me in your arms and hold me. 

This bell will ring when our time has come.

This bell will ring when we run for the bus.

This bell will ring when we are alone.

This bell will ring when these days are gone.

This bell will ring when we dream a dream of good.

This bell will ring when we feel no hope.

This bell will ring when people say that we are boring.

This bell will ring when we learn something new.

This bell will ring when we touch in the dark.

This bell will ring when I hold a flower to your lips.

This bell will ring when we feel no hope.

This bell will ring when from nothing something comes.’
