drabble: The Valley Is Jolly

for the "music" challenge at tolkien_weekly

The Valley is Jolly


“And listen and hark
Till the end of the dark
to our tune
ha! ha!”




The harper hid his face against his beautiful and ethereal companion, who was still smiling rather too broadly and waving feebly.

“Are they gone? Please tell me they’re gone. If I have to tra-la-la-lally one more time, I swear I shall go mad...”

As the answer was slow in coming, he raised his head in time to see the line of dwarves disappearing over the pass.

It was wise in these dangerous days to seem frivolous and harmless to outsiders – but sweet stars! A fortnight with dwarves underfoot!

“A moment — ah, I think we might resume our real lives now.”
