Long Ago They Sailed Away


She knelt on the floor, carefully picking up the shards of glass. Why did it have to be this one that broke?  Of all the nursery items long-packed-away, brought out for each new royal generation?

Her grandfather had often told her how his great friend Gimli the Dwarf had hand-blown each perfect sphere; how Legolas the Elf-prince painted them with exquisite swirling patterns, in transparent colours that threw dancing rainbows around her bedroom walls when the mobile danced in the sunlit breeze.

And now it is gone, and they will never make another.  She nursed the broken fragments, and wept.
