Two Soldiers



It was the day after Sharkey and his lot had been routed.

Neither Frodo nor Sam had any words as they stood and surveyed the sad ruin of Bag End in the golden morning light.

Finally Sam said in a voice thick with tears, “I know my Gaffer says it’s the job that’s never started as takes the longest … but how do we even know where to start here? It’s all gone.”

“Not quite, Sam. Look!”

Two bright orange nasturtian blossoms there were, growing out of the rubble, rooted in the rich old soil of Bag End’s front garden.
