We Will Pass the Wide Waters Lonely Sailing
For a week out of Tolfalas they'd hugged the coast of Gondor; now the world is only sky, sea, horizon. They talked endlessly, at first, exchanging memories, fears, hopes... but the words have largely run out. Fishing or steering, there is little to do but think – kin, friends, the daily round are fallen away, and wind and wave strip the soul naked. They both begin to imagine how Frodo must have felt beneath the Lidless Eye. Who are you? Why do you come? What do you seek?
Gimli whittles endless fish-hooks; at the helm Legolas gazes, unresting, into the West.
