More than meets the eye
He’d been wondering about the trees that the wood of their staves had come from, whether he’d ever see one himself.
‘Lebethron’, Faramir had named them, ‘beloved of the woodwrights of Gondor’.
Mallorns filled his mind, making it hard to imagine what other, unknown, trees might look like.
Only later did the Ranger’s words sink in.
‘A virtue has been set upon them of finding and returning.’
And Sam pondered who had instilled such virtue, what knowledge of lore and magic Faramir possessed, whether there was more to the man than a bow and a sword battling against the darkness.
