2. Nimble Nimrodel - by Dean Maia of Este
The dancers turned together, came to point together, swung into the leap together, and landed in a heap together. Then, as they untangled and lined up again the dancing master said "Think of Nimrodel, how graceful and nimble she was. Try again."
A bit later, the dancing master untangled himself from the heap of dancers that had landed on him. He looked at the dejected faces around him. "Do not give up." He said "You went three times as long before falling as at first. And, it is not well known but Nimrodel fell too. Yes, we named the river after her because when she was young she was always falling in. Now stop laughing and try again."
After the summer festival Thranduil told the dancing master that this was his best group in years. They were all as nimble as Nimrodel.
