Our Glockenspiel

To the editor:

The Glockenspiel is silent.

Its bells don’t make a sound.

Its figures are reliant,

For they still spin around.

The people come to listen.

They stop, but nothing’s heard.

Some come as on a mission.

The clock’s without a word.

What can be done to fix it

And make it sound again

So that the bells will emit

Their joyful sound? Amen.
