An early encounter between Gleowine the minstrel and the battle harp--and  also between Gleowine and his future king, Theoden, son of Thengel.

Story Notes:

Written for the Art's Desire challenge at the LOTR community (February 2017).

Inspired by Rohan icons created by Oshun for the July 2012 Art Challenge: Miniature. 

Oshun comments on the icons: "It is part of my own personal, perhaps AU, canon to imagine that the Rohan as an oral culture made use of harps, including battle harps."

The icons, which depict riders and a harp, are here:
