|Beautiful love letter from Denethor! And what a tender and bright depiction of spring. I especially liked the riotous trumpeting of the daffodils. The last line is a little funny as if, after being carried away by the excitement of spring, he suddenly remembers himself--"oh, right, I am trying to entice her back here..." How could Finduilas have resisted him? |
Author Reply: My Denethor, though besotted, knows exactly what he is doing - enticing her by letting brief glimpses of his poetic side appear, then hurriedly concealing them again. He's such a tease!

|Delightful! Especially the third one. Can practically smell the flowers. Keep it up, this is some fine writing....|
Author Reply: Thank you so much, Armariel!
I wrote it on a dreary day, so it was a much a prayer of hope, as a vision of the White City at its loveliest.

|This was so lovely!|
Your description of early spring's flowers and birds make me appreciate again the beauties of my country home.
I'm especially impressed with the outpouring of "sane" Denethor's heart.
Again, a lovely drabble. Thank you for sharing it.
Author Reply: Thank you for your kind words!
I was inspired while in the midst of reading "Courting the Lady", and so I have somewhat subconsciously mimicked Celandine's writing style, and her vision of cool, collected head-over-heals-in-love Denethor. It sounds like a strange combination, but she's brought him to life so well! A lovely story - you would enjoy it very much, I think.
