2. The Grey Wanderer

The Grey Wanderer

He came to them, an old man. Grey was his beard, grey his cloak and his face was stern.

Round-eyed, they stared. For a long while the three were still, the Steward’s sons and the stranger; the Tree’s white branches between them.

Then, the younger, fair and fearless came forward.

“Welcome, lord Mithrandir.” And the wizard saw in the child’s gaze, past, present and future - all he was now and all he would one day be. Much grief and sorrow to come; yet faith there was too, and joy at the end.

“Hail, lord Faramir,” said Mithrandir, slowly smiling.
