  • Beneath the church in Sitges
    An ageless pounding surf,
    Above San Bartolomé y Santa Tecla
    Cloudless blue its boundless scarf

    Twelve bells all it can chime
    Twice a day it carillons,
    Twenty-four times complete

    Its entire truth gets sounded
    In quarters & halves,
    Its full compass outpoured

    Brilliantly perched overlooking
    Announcing every peal,
    Not yet are we swept out
    Into blue on blue unfurled
