|The Last Mallorn by Mirach||4 Review(s)|
|ecan||Reviewed Chapter: 1 on 10/4/2009|
|Great Poem, Gil-Estel Has me on the edge of my sit.|
Isthis Poem about Celeborn His translate name is Silver Tree or is it about
Maglor watching the last of his Kind sail for the west.
Author Reply: Thank you! I think it can be about Celeborn or Maglor, I don't like lessons in literature where they tell you what you should think about a poem - what *you* feel about it is important. For me, this is a lament of a Mortal after all Elves have sailed, lament for all the beauty and magic that left these shores with them. Maybe the mallorn can be the one that Sam planted.

|How easily Sam might have written this!|
Author Reply: I think he really could, looking at the mallorn that he planted and remembering Lórien...

Oh, that was lovely, in that throat-achingly sad way. Which is so appropriate for Tolkien poetry like this. Well done!
Author Reply: *hands you a handkerchief* One hobbit taught me to have them always at hand... Especially when reading professor's writings, they always do this to me when I come to the end and to the Grey Havens...
Thank you very much for your review!
