Tree Challenge: Trunk - We Will Rebuild

Title: We Will rebuild
Author: SilverStarSpray
Characters/Pairing: Círdan
Rating: PG
Warnings: None
Book/Source: Silmarillion
Disclaimer: Tolkien's the genius, not me.

Círdan stooped to pick up a piece of driftwood. The beaches – jagged, rocky things – were strewn with the stuff. Once, the wood he held had been a part of a mighty tree, with a thick, sturdy trunk that could endure any storm, except war.

All along the beaches Elves and Men wandered, gathering driftwood for fuel, or to build temporary homes, until stone could be brought from farther inland to build proper cities and harbors.

The Valar thought those who refused to follow them West unwise. Gil-galad and others – Galadriel, Oropher (and Círdan himself) – were determined to prove them wrong.
