On the Fair Hill

Midsummer in the Golden Wood.

MEFAwards 2006: 2nd Place - Times: Late Third Age: Fixed-Length Ficlet
MPAwards 2007: Nominee Category: Nature


Hushed silence reigned between the Mellyrn; the only sounds the soft rustling of the canopy, the song of a bird wooing its mate.

Beams of sunlight reached through the leaves, turning the scene into a dazzling vista of green, gold and silver. Dust motes shimmered, flickered, danced in the warm breeze of a Midsummer evening. Swaying branches created dappled spots of light, forever changing, revealing new details:

A cluster of golden blossoms. A leaf, gently drifting, showing its pale green or its silver side. Stars of Elanor and Niphredil studding the grass.

A kiss of two lovers, joining long-sundered kindred.


- The title is inspired by the corresponding passage in RotK, Appendix A I (v), The Tale of Aragorn and Arwen.
