Leaving the Bent World Behind

I was sent back to complete my task. Now I find it difficult to leave.

I have seen the shadow in Faramir’s eyes replaced by peace. I have lingered by the Withywindle, listening wide-eyed to tales of the time before Time. I have held Samwise’s tiny daughter; seen the future of Middle-earth through her eyes. How could I not wish to stay?

Yet each evening I hear the music, calling me home. In the twilight of autumn I will follow, until the seas of the Bent World fall away, and the winds of the round sky trouble me no more.


“In the twilight of autumn it sailed out of Mithlond, until the seas of the Bent World fell away beneath it, and the winds of the round sky troubled it no more, and born upon the high airs above the mists of the world it passed into the Ancient West, and an end was come for the Eldar of story and of song.” - The Silmarillion
