She died before I was born. Boromir says he remembers her, but I doubt that. I know our sister’s hair was dark - I’ve seen the lock of hair curled inside Mother’s locket, a tiny breaking wave... held fast with spiralling gold wires and seed pearls.

Boromir remembers being carried to the Anduin, Mother’s hair was loose, wind-blown. They lit candles set in folded parchment boats. He remembers crying when his sank... turning to her for comfort, finding she wept. His nurse took him up, walked away... but our mother stood there, staring after the little lights drifting toward the sea.
