Between Five Bells are the last three words in the first stanza of Kenneth Slessor’s famous poem, Five Bells. The poem is understood to tell the tale of the death of Joe Lynch, a friend of the poets, and is set on/in/around (it gets confusing) Sydney Harbour. The “bells” are a reference to ship's-bells, rung to announce the time of a ship's-watch, and are used to infer the concept of time, and how time relates to both the poet and drowning death of Joe. It's a poem about place and the spirit of place.
A beautiful lyrical poem, well worth a read or listen and central to the way we think about the B5B wines.
