Assorted Drabbles: 22. Sudden Spring

For the LiveJournal tolkien_weekly "Water: Ice and Snow" challenge.





Sudden Spring




When first I set eyes on her in the shadows of Meduseld, I thought of a birch sapling in snow; holding herself rigid against endless winter.  And when her icy shell began to thaw in the warmth of Aragorn's smile, I winced, knowing this budding hope could bring only pain to her and grief to him.

Now mere moon-rounds later I see her joy unfolding beneath the sun, basking in her Steward's love, and I am baffled by the swift season-changes of Mortal hearts; yet I cannot but be glad for this maiden who is cold and pale no more.

Elena Tiriel's favorite drabbles (vignettes of precisely 100 words), drabble multiples, or drabble series from Tolkien fanfic; a very personal and eclectic list of drabbles at HASA that have touched me in some way. See Inspiring Stories for a list of favorite stories of other types.

Why This Story?

See Olórin I was in my Youth in the West that is Forgotten; a perfect gem of a drabble with hauntingly beautiful language.
