that land. For in the autumn their leaves fall not, but turn to gold. Not till the spring comes Lorthlorien Shawl by Jennifer Woodand the new green opens do they fall. Then the boughs are laden with golden blossom in clusters like a cherry; and the floor of the wood is golden, and golden is the roof, and its pillars are of silver, for the bark of the trees is smooth and grey.”
