From the soundtrack for my unfolding Elderbrook Chronicles, a fantasy series of four volumes.

Kloh of the Kora is the court minstrel of Elderbrook. Illustration by me, Louisa John-Krol.

Elderbrook is an elven realm beneath south-eastern Australia, named after the ancient river that flows above.


Balladeer sing high, Balladeer sing low,
Troubadour a harpist on the roam;
Strumming in the sky, whirling in the snow
Thrumming every tendril in the loam...

Green goblins making brave companions
Loyal myrtle to a throne
Kloh spins a name of silk and amber
You’ll never be alone.

Never letting them know, never letting it show
Never say you saw me on the road -
Better say it was no bone of a minstrel
Never tell the Lady I am Kloh!
Say, what you saw was just a shadow,
Only a dreamer coming home.
