Can You Hear Them?

From far away,
the clanging of muted church bells. 
From far away,
a soft vibration in the sway
of the wind. The satiant sound swells
with lost songs of singing angels
from far away.

Thanks Tony,  It wasn't the form I was challenged by, the prompt "singing angels" had me scratching my head.   How do I use that without sounding schwarmy?  Actually I just read a prose poem over at WDC that is just awesome encompassing all spirituality without conjuring angels with wings.

I learned a new form today. Aside from the refrain, I like L4 that is carried to L5 the part "of the wind". For me, it carried the entire poem.
