Trees challenge - Mallorn - 'Namárië'

Title: Namárië
Author: Kortirion
Character: Haldir
Rating: G
Source: Fourth Age
Disclaimer: Tolkien’s imaginarium – Kortirion like to dream there a little.

Mellyrn – noblest of trees - gifted to Númenor by elves of the Lonely Isle... to Gil-Galad, he to his kinswoman, Galadriel... her seedlings became Lothlórien’s glades. Roofed and floored with gold, supported by pillared trunks of silver-grey – what a palace was Laurelindórenan! But that was in a spring that faded long years ago.

Haldir sighed. She’d gifted a rare seed to Samwise, thriving now in soil far away. Only one other grew elsewhere, his Lord’s gift for a service given. Unrealised treasure... or perhaps... they did know...

He tucked a last leaf inside his tunic... before they rode away.
