“We should be moving on, Mr. Frodo,” said Sam.

“Give me another minute, Sam-lad.”

“All right, sir.” Sam’s burning eyes travelled idly over the tumble of rocks around them. Suddenly, he gave a low whistle. “Well, I never.”

“What is it?”

“This.” Sam picked up a rock and held it out to Frodo. Imprinted upon its grey surface was a delicate, lacy frond. “It’s a fern—or was.”

“This was once a green and growing land, Sam,” said Frodo sadly.

“And may be again someday, sir,” Sam softly replied.

He set the fern down, face up to the darkling sky.
