For the “Renewal” challenge

Now the Green Blade Riseth

I'd never seen my boy so angry as he was ‘bout the Party Tree. Now, I love green things as much as he, but what with the stealin', and burnin', and folk turned out o' their homes, you'd think – still, he had fond memories of that tree, Mr. Bilbo and all.

He planted a little silver nubbin in its place. “You’re like a hen with one chick, fretting over that whatever-it-is!” says I.

“Just you wait,” he smiles.

Now there's a pretty little thing coming up, slender, with shimmery gold leaves. Makes me happy just lookin’ at it. Peaceful, like.
