Celeborn


On the Lonely Isle
A White Tree stands;

Son of Tirion on Tuna
Where silvering strands
Of Ithil's light gleaming

Bring now the seeming
Of Telperion fair;
And below sits their daughter
Gold in her hair

Artanis Galadriel, Celeborn's wife
Laurelin's light in her eyes
dwells by the White Tree's side.

What a lovely image you paint! I can just see her sitting beneath the Tree!

Thank you! :) So can I! And of course, the White Tree of Tol Eressea is named "Celeborn"!!

I, too, can see her beneath the White Tree, keeping alive the memory
y of what long ago was lost here, and what is now found here. Beautiful, Kaylee.

A simple picture of luminous loveliness. Most evocative.

Wonderful use of imagery and enjambment throughout this. I loved this look at Celeborn--your wordchoice really made a minor character into a vivid persona.

The Tree Celeborn, or the Elf? *wink* I couldn't resist the comparison!
