Faramir had thought it a ploy to keep children out from underfoot when Eowyn set them to gathering dandelion blossoms in the noonday sun. Yet the men, clearing fields for early sowing, mending fences, repairing tools and tack in the courtyard, smiled, their hearts lightened at the sound of youthful voices raised in laughter and song.
When the first icy winds howled ‘round the rafters, the sun but a memory and a hope, the community gathered within itself. Bottles were uncorked, goblets passed around, and the good folk of Emyn Arnen greeted the solstice with a taste of golden springtime.
