    The Bern author Livia Anne Richard has adapted the universal love story to a Zermatt mountain farmer story. Here is her introduction:

    Two Zermatt farm families each with a grudge, Their despairing, enamoured children, A headless puppet as a bad omen, The parish priest, who sees what’s coming, And tells the lovers a tale: The story of Romeo and Juliet. A homeless knife sharpener with a great dream. Will a new fate be carved Out of a bad omen?

    The Matterhorn: it knows – and wryly smiles.
