“Let us rest here for a while,” said Gandalf as the Fellowship approached a sheltered leafy glade. ”The trees will protect us from the wind and unwelcome eyes.”

Legolas eyed the trees lovingly. “These trees are so fair!” he exclaimed. “They speak to me of home.”

“I have always welcomed the shade of a great tree of my travels,” said Aragorn.

“They would make good firewood,” said Gimli, fingering his axe.

“The wood would build fine ships to defend Gondor,” said Boromir.

“Everyone knows trees are for having picnics and parties under!” said Pippin. The other Hobbits nodded in agreement.
