The bells of église Saint-Séverin include the oldest one remaining in Paris, cast in 1412. Their ringing is recalled in a well known poem in praise of Paris by the American poet Alan Seeger, who died in World War I. He was killed in action at Belloy-en-Santerre. One of his more famous poems was “I Have a Rendezvous with Death”. He was a friend and old classmate of T. S. Eliot at Harvard.
