2. Mazes of the Mind by Mar'isu
Mazes of the Mind
He is old, terribly old. He awoke to the love of the Entwives and to their laughter as they taught the "funny little river-folk" the ways of corn and cabbages. New leaves grew and flowers fell. Years passed and the river flowed. Rooted in stone, he cannot move. He cannot follow as the Entwives leave, in search of some other land in need of order. Arien burns and Tilion pursues. The thoughts of trees grow black and bitter. The river drinks his songs and the wind carries his whispers, flinging them far and wide. Now the forest is a labyrinth of his will, and all acknowledge the Willow Lord.
Well, all save one."None has ever caught him yet, for Tom, he is the master:
His songs are stronger songs, and his feet are faster."
