Merely to Run

Together they have ridden out across the Pelennor, surveying how much of the damage wrought by the siege has been set aright so far. The King sits his great brown stallion easily,as if he were one of the Rohirrim, although the horse itself shows little sign of Rohan’s bloodlines. Yet the great beast answers readily to the least change in pressure of heels or knees, the least shift of weight; and as the King suggests a brief race, Faramir finds himself falling behind, admiring the running horse before him that exhibits such delight in seeking to outstrip Manwë’s winds!
