I think that the 3rd Stanza is talking about fire bells And the sign off disaster consuming death.It has a menacing,frighting mood. THe Alarm bells i think are a sound of terror and fright. In this stanza you can see the change from in the begg. of the poem when it went from happy to gay to afriad and full of terror. Well i hope this helps you out a little!
