The Toll of the Bell

The death bell tolls:

“nine knells for a man

   six for a woman

      and three for a child.”

 

But the church bell protects from witches:

“Much the witches fear the spell

When by night they hear a bell,

Off they fly over the sky

When they hear dondo dondo.”

(Old Gypsy Song)
