“What’s that song?” said Faramir sleepily.
“Leaves singing the ocean’s song that the rain taught them”
“Really? Who taught you?”
“A tree-dweller,” said his amah.
“What sort? – A squirrel? A bird?”
“Neither,” she said tucking him in tightly.
“A lizard?”
“No!... Though I thought then, he’d a cold heart…” she murmured.
“ – You had a sweetheart!”
She slapped the quilt smooth, “Master Faramir – you chatter too much. Go to sleep!”

Refusing to elaborate, she lit the night-light, then took her place by the moonlit window. Faramir drifted away, lulled by elvish phrases - the lover’s song she’d never forgotten.
