The bell is silent now. It used to ring with every meal served at the farm.
Now the once fertile fields are covered in asphalt and concrete. The farm machinery long gone, sold to the highest bidder.
One little corner remains, an old farmhouse, sad and neglected. Waiting for the bell to ring again and to hear joyous voices raised in cheer while eating wholesome meals laid out on long tables. Men, women, children eating and laughing before going back to work once again.
It was a hard life, but a fulfilling one. All gone, except the bell, waiting, silent.
