Summary: Written for the Aragorn Angst Prompt #70—Green. A prose poem about the end of the War of the Ring. As green is one of my favorite colors, I couldn't resist. :)

Laeg

Laeg,

The colors of all things new,

The color of every living plant,

The color of a new dawn,

A new hope.

-

Laeg,

The color of the Shire in the spring,

Of the bright hills and trees,

Of the crops that grow

And the gardens planted.

-

Laeg,

The color of Pelennor when spring awakens,

The weathered fields awash with the color,

The endless sea of grass,

The vast emptiness of the plains.

-

Laeg,

The color of the forests of Eryn Lasgalen,

No longer dark and filled with evil,

But light and filled with good,

It is a symbol of victory.

-

Laeg,

The colors of all things fresh,

The color of all that live,

The color of a new season,

A new ambition.

-

Laeg.

Ethuil.

Estel.

The End


Translations:
