Visions Of Trees

 

 

Legolas gazed at the barren land. He saw not the bare hillsides where trees had been felled to fuel the fires of Orthanc, nor the despoiled land fouled by the filth of orcs.  He saw trees again – trees, growing fair and tall; avenues of chestnuts; sunlit glades carpeted with bluebells. “I can bring saplings from Lasgalen and Ithilien – a mixture of oak, ash and birch. Hazel and elderberry too, to attract animals and birds here again.” 

 

He pointed to a blackened patch of earth, smiling. “And a clearing of beeches here.  In time we will make this a woodland again.”
