“As there are sounds beyond our hearing, so is there light beyond our seeing,” Saruman declaimed, stark amidst the bright trees.
Gríma was fond of Isengard in autumn, and generally preferred it to Edoras. Yet things had improved in Meduseld, since Théoden began noticing his insight. Seeing this, even Gálmód had ceased complaining that his son still got thrown by horses.
“I don’t much love horses, myself,” Saruman had said, conspiratorially, years ago. Those words had been valuable to Gríma–as had all the wizard’s words since, for he knew much of lands, stars, histories, the minds of Men.
