I only know I wake

still'd with fear,
the memory
of a cry


in my throat.

Even here.

I often wonder if it was so. Pain may lessen, physical wounds ease or heal, but threads of memories both fond and fearful would surely linger, even in that fair place. How can Frodo ever escape his own thoughts? He was thinking of home in those final lines, a bitter-sweet reflection, but comforting nonetheless. Another beautiful, touching poem, Jan-u-wine.

Mechtild, those screencaps of Frodo and Sam walking together in Rivendell are the most gorgeous I have seen! A fleeting sequence on film, it is one of my favourite moments in the entire trilogy. Frodo is stunningly beautiful here ~ a true halfling Prince! (I love Sam's expression too ~ a look of contentment as he follows close behind his beloved master, whose health is almost restored.)

Thank you both,
~ Blossom.

That was thoughfully expressed, Blossom. Thank you. Yes, the "threads of memory" will linger, maybe for ever. But hopefully in time they will only add to Frodo's pleasure in what he now is able to enjoy, as a sort of dark background that makes bright things brighter.

They really did turn out well, didn't they? I threw half of the captures away, and still felt self-indulgent keeping so many, but they're just so beautiful! I have a particularly strong response looking at the ones in which Frodo appears to be looking directly at the viewer. I feel such a connection to him in that moment, because of it. It goes by in a flash when the scene is actually playing, but in caps, I can rest in the moment. But that's one of the beauties of looking at screencaps. :)

Dear Blossom, I'm very happy that you enjoyed the poem, and that it engendered such a thoughtful and lovely reply.
