About this creation
I choose Treebeards Song:
In the willow-meads of Tasarinan I walked in the Spring.
Ah! the sight and the smell of the Spring in Nantasarion!
And I said that was good.
I wandered in summer in the elm-woods of Ossiriand.
Ah! the light and the music in the Summer by the Seven Rivers of Ossir!
And I thought that was best.
To the beeches of Neldoreth I came in the Autumn.
Ah! the gold and the red and the sighing leaves in the
Autumn in Taur-na-neldor!
It was more than my desire.
To the pine trees upon the highland of Dorthonion
I climbed in the winter.
Ah! the wind and the whiteness and the black branches of Winter upon Orod-na-Thon!
My voice went up and sang in the sky.
And now all those lands lie under the wave
And I walk in Ambarona, in Tauremorna, in Aldalome,
In my own land in the country of Fangorn,
Where the roots are long,
And the years lie thicker than the leaves
