Every year Faramir returned to honour those who fell at Osgiliath.


It was hard now to imagine that so many lives had been lost at this now peaceful spot


The willows grew green and fresh on both sides of the Anduin, their long branches seeking the river, offering shade from the summer heat.


How apt, Faramir thought, that weeping willows should grow here, to forever mourn the flower of Gondor who were slaughtered there. Only the memories remained: vivid and unsullied as the living trees. The wind sighed through the branches, singing its mournful lament for fallen sons and brothers
