I wrote about 50 lines for The Ballad of Galldor today, trying to get the right tone, cadence, and rhyme, for the next couple of stanzas. I've only added one of those for now. I'm still not sure it works, and may remove or replace it in the future.
I've also changed the line And kept to the shadows to And kept behind cover because I found it hard to imagine shadows to hide in in an open field.
It's a process! One day, the ballad will be complete, but that day is not today.
