By the Sea

"No, Boromir," Finduilas said firmly.  "You may not take a sword to gift the new baby.  Elphir is newborn, too small for a sword."

Boromir scowled.  "Too small to play, then!  What good is visiting a new cousin if we cannot play?"

"Perhaps Uncle Imrahil will play swords with you while we admire the baby," Finduilas suggested, and Boromir was content.

"You look happy," Denethor said, kissing his wife.  "It will be good for you to be home by the sea again for a time."

Finduilas smiled.  "A reunion with my brother to see his new babe, with you and my sons together by the sea, is very good indeed!"

Such a pleasant ficlet, I can easily imagine that every visit to her childhood home was a special delight to Finduilas.

What a lovely and lighthearted look at this dark family.

Yes, a chance for her to go home, but not alone, but with her family!
And young Boromir may find more use for this cousin than he thinks--if not this time, then later!

I love seeing this happy familial scene, without the pain to come when she died so young. And Boromir's desire to bring the baby a sword is so true to his character. My own older brother was most disappointed to find I wasn't yet old enough to play with when I arrived at last. Boromir reminds me of Big Bro's response to my birth as described by my mother.
