Continuing the series of glimpses into life in Eldarion's classroom when he is a very little boy.

W is for Willow.

Firiel had learnt that trees were often a good way to hold her pupil’s attention. It was, she supposed, all that elvish blood running through his young veins.

“W is for ‘Willow’. And also for ‘Weeping’. The Weeping Willow; that must be a very sad tree.”

Eldarion considered.

“Uncle Pippin says that willows can be really bad tempered and ‘out to get people’. But Uncle Legolas says that they need listening to, and understanding, and love; and then they’ll be happy and nice to you.”

His governess considered the fey creature that was Uncle Legolas.

‘Yes…’ she thought, ‘…he would.’
