And What Then Shall I Sing?



"Greenleaf, hear me."

"I can't."

"I know."

"Arwen! Maybe I don't want to climb a tree."

"You're a wood elf."


"Everyone thinks you are, and that's enough for me."

"And everyone thinks I'm Estel's friend—that should be enough for you, too."

"You are his friend."

"Then why has his wife dragged me to a far-away tree?"

"We're in a garden."


"To say—to say farewell."

"Don't weep, Evenstar. Ours was not a love meant to be."

"Will you sing for me, Greenleaf? To greet the dawn?"

"And what then shall I sing?"

"Sing of us."
