The Elf leaned against the tree, his ear pressed close to the trunk and a rapt look upon his face.
“What are you doing?” Faramir enquired.
“Listening to the tree.” Legolas smiled at the Steward. “It tells me that it is thriving. Why do you not speak to it?”
Faramir laughed. ”I am no Elf!” Nevertheless, he leaned against the tree and whispered soft words. He could hear the birds singing, the hum of the bees, and the rippling stream nearby. Then he heard it, a faint rustling in the leaves. “The trees are happy, the land blossoms in peace.”
