wow, LT. I am floored by this comment. Firstly, I am so glad that you enjoyed the poem and think it so *worthy*. I'm not sure that it is my best, but that is a very flattering thing, indeed.

to be honest, I have not written much lately, so this was a particular challenge, being as I rarely write in Arwen's "voice". But it also was a breath of fresh air, so to speak, making me think in different patterns than the ones associated with Frodo. I'm glad that it was successful!

(oddly enough, i think in words like "depends" (in its Olde English style meaning). I'm an strange duck, and that's a fact)

(I am at the library with only 3 minutes to do this, so if it seems rushed, you'll know why....)

I think that most of the credit and huzzahs for the beauty of this post must go to Mechtild. it was her idea for me to pursue a different voice and it is she who "sets" the 'stone' of the poem into the beautiful frame of her own words and pictures.

Thank you, Mechtild, and thank you, LT, for the wonderful praise. I hope to be able to comment more when i have a computer, lol!
