Story notes:

This was written for a fundraising challenge for the Henneth Annun Story Archive (HASA). The writing challenge itself finished at the end of January, but HASA, which is an old and important archive for Tolkien fan fiction, is still urgently in need of more funding and pledges are still open: see the announcement here.

Other contributions for the challenge, nine in all, were written by Aruthir, Fool of a Took, Nath and Linaewen. The submissions currently appear as a group on top of the HASA homepage.


The secret the forest keeps

is not its shadowy boles,

is not its twisting paths,

is not its drowsy stream.


The secret the forest keeps

is not its milk-white deer,

is not its perilous webs,

is not its fairy feasts.


The secret the forest keeps—

if you know how to climb the oak—

is the sunshine among the treetops

and the butterflies in the breeze.
