"Looping Bells on a Downspout"

Looping Bells on a Downspout

 

We turn toward bells

solace or solution

welcoming or repelling

thieves who took

our copper downspout

in the wee hours 

of our mid-sleep

the scene is reset

new like rainfall 

in the wee hours

thieves who took

solace or solution 

of our mid-sleep

the scene is reset

our copper downspout

new like rainfall 
welcoming or repelling 
we turn toward bells

Today is 2/22/22, a palindrome date. This poem is not a perfect palindrome; but I'm considering it a member of the palindrome family (maybe a cousin). There's leeway with the rearrangement of nine lines as they repeat, a swerve in the form.
