The Leaf

- Dinledhwen
Into Mirkwood I did roam,
Straying farther from my home.
There I was happy to find,
An Elf of the Tolkien kind.
Then he bid me to follow,
Into this light streaked hollow.
Where we saw this stunning sight,
Beech trees soaring to great height.
Then the Elf bestowed to me,
The green leaf from one tall tree.
Quickly I was wide awake,
With the coming of daybreak.
Thinking I had left dreamland,
But for this leaf in my hand!
