Making A Garden
1. Making A Garden
Éowyn and I forsake the ordering of our new home. We hasten, hand in hand, into the garden, to inspect the spring blossoms.
Spring has brought forth fair new irises, sunflowers, pansies, lavender, simbelmyne and stonecrop. We find our favorite nook and spread our blanket beneath the stone images of Cirion and Eorl. There, we weave garlands of flowers and place them on each other's brows. But our hands yearn for other occupation, and are soon busy unfastening, unbinding, and uncovering…And what glorious bounty blooms to my touch. The wreaths' petals mingle, falling as we tumble in a fragrant cascade.
"Yet I will wed with the White Lady of Rohan, if it be her will. And if she will, then let us cross the River and in happier days let us dwell in fair Ithilien and there make a garden. All things will grow with joy there, if the White Lady comes."
