The Horns Not Blown

RadhusetTowerwithStatues.jpg

The Rådhus tower

dwarfs the shadow

of its miniature

pointing to the

same cerulean sky

as the lur-blowers

raise their horns

in readiness

to announce

the arrival

of a virgin

passerby, but

their arms are tired

and their bronzed

mouths breathless,

their instruments

never played,

eternally silent.
