Beneath the Fading Trees
  For his part, Thranduil wanted only to see if the rumors were true. On his way south to visit Legolas, he detoured through Lothlorien. 

  Expecting to find brilliant golden boughs, he saw only yellowed leaves, scattered and pale. Where once there had been songs and light, there was naught but a profound sadness, as if the whole wood grieved.

  Once, he caught a glimpse of a black-clad figure- an elleth, he thought- but before he could call out, she glided away and was lost. 

  No, there was nothing now but ghosts beneath the fading trees.
