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.”

Faramir had often dreamt of the return of the King. He imagined the heir of Elendil riding upon a white horse, dressed in the finest velvets adorned with jewels, a crown upon his head.

He had known the stranger at once when he came to him in the darkness. Tall and gracious he stood, and a light was in his eyes. Faramir heeded his call.

Opening his eyes, Faramir studied his king. The man’s weary features were streaked with sweat and blood. His plain garb was well worn, but his eyes sparkled, warm and kind. Arda had no nobler sight.
