What do you mean, Stevie?

I work with a woman named Rhiannon. Her parents were die-hard Fleetwood Mac fans (and who isn't, really), and well, there you go: Rhiannon.

Now, everytime I see her, my mind says that "Rhiannon rings like a bell through the night," and it has occurred to me that I don't know what that means. How does a person ring like a bell through the night? What quality is she (or he for that matter) expressing? Or is there no meaning at all? Is it just a beautiful lyric that suggests without ever quite defining?

The things I think about.

    I don't know the answer right off hand; I'm the only child of the 70s who isn't a fan of Fleetwood Mac.

    I'm sure if I put the Mighty Powers of my brain to use, I could come up with a pretty good explanation. However, since this is summer break, you'll have to wait until September when my brain comes back on line.

    How 'bout this:

    When you hear a bell peal in the darkest night, it rings in your head and echoes throughout the night its clear note. In other words, She Resonates.

    Good enough?

    "you may be right" had the same answer I was thinking, only (s)he probably said it more clearly than I would have.

    "Rhiannon ring like a bell through the night"

    I interpret this line as the following...

    It's about Rhiannons sultry walk. If you would imagine a beautiful women (in this case Rhiannon), and you are watching her behind sway like a bell - a very provocative and sexy image I must say :-)
