Time of Year Challenge: Harvest - Word-Gathering

Title: Word-Gathering
Author: SilverStarSpray
Characters/Pairing: Daeron
Rating: G
Warnings: None
Book/Source: Silmarillion
Disclaimer: Tolkien's the genius, not me.

While others harvest fruits and nuts and roots as the leaves turn fiery red and gold and orange, Daeron harvests words – travelers and traders from all corners of Beleriand, from the Ered Luin to Círdan’s harbors by the Sea, come to Menegroth where Thingol and Melian sit resplendent on their thrones, and they bring with them tales and songs that paint pictures in his mind as vivid as the colors in Queen Melian’s tapestries.

And he stores their words deep in his mind, to bring out during long cold nights to warm hearts and minds like mulled cider warms bodies.
