‘the infant fell’

the child felt within reach
yet still the infant fell
slipped into a coma
hear now the tolling of the bell ring
out across the valley low
and the tears begin to patter down
as the news winds its circuit
through the town the blinds are drawn
from the final peal a hush the only sound
