DPF / Schnackenberg

For the story of Oedipus, from The Throne of Labdacus.

from One: The God Tunes the Strings / by Gjertrud Schnackenberg

Then the god begins tuning the strings
With the squeak of the wooden pegs

Rotating in their holes,
As if he were setting the tragic text

To the music of houseflies.
