NF-Lee's Gildor and Frodo

"The Lady Elanor" by jan-u-wine, with three paintings.


Here begins a series of entries featuring poems by jan-u-wine, paired with art chosen to set off the pieces. The poem below twists my heart with its emotional power, yet it's written with Jan's characteristic reserve. In it, her eye for detail and painterly way with words depict with vivid economy what might have been Elanor's interior experience as she braces herself for the departure of her beloved father.Collapse )
