And so the year…

Quote

And so the years went by. Good Queen Singeli grew old, but whenever she went in the large kingdom she left a bright road behind her. And when she died all people longed to hear her footsteps again.

After that, whenever the elves in the great kingdom saw a star fall in the evening, they would call out, “See, Queen Singeli has gone by.”

But the wicked trolls would run and hide themselves behind fallen trees and large stones.
