Sudden Spring

For the LiveJournal tolkien_weekly "Water: Ice and Snow" challenge.


~~~

When first I set eyes on her in the shadows of Meduseld, I thought of a birch sapling in snow; holding herself rigid against endless winter. And when her icy shell began to thaw in the warmth of Aragorn’s smile, I winced, knowing this budding hope could bring only pain to her and grief to him.

Now mere moon-rounds later I see her joy unfolding beneath the sun, basking in her Steward’s love, and I am baffled by the swift season-changes of Mortal hearts; yet I cannot but be glad for this maiden who is cold and pale no more.
