After the bell rang, Clarice looked behind her.
No wings yet, but she kept her head held high.
Getting them would mean she hade made it
Everything came down to that moment in her life
Looking at the program she smiled and settled back
So many more chances as the handbells started their next song
The story rang across the countryside
Everyone was soon discussing what had happened
Leaving the two parties that were at the heart of the tale fuming
Looking for who broke the silence
