A set of four short pieces for lever or pedal harp, based on haiku by Hilary Burden about the four seasons in Northeast Tasmania.
1. Karoola Spring - a delicate piece entirely in the treble clef expresses waiting for swallows to return to an empty nest.
2. Karoola Summer - a joyous syncopated South American dance for alpacas in a nearby field.
3. Karoola Autumn - expansive and brooding chords evoke a feeling of fullness and bittersweet loss.
4. Karoola Winter - a dialogue between left and right hands with many harmonics paints a picture of birds visiting a frozen birdbath.
