I hang on the gate of a castle that stands on the top of a high mountain.
I bear the inscription:
Whoever can this trumpet blow
Shall cause the giant’s overthrow.
I have been quiet for a long time, but one day, someone will climb to this high place, pick me up and blow me. Who, I wonder, will be brave enough?
