Story Notes:

For B2MEM Day 12: Elves are one with Nature. What about Men? Hobbits? Dwarves? Write a story or poem or create artwork where the way different races relate to Nature is shown.


Long ago, she had been tame, taught to bear her crops obediently.  But the elves who had owned her sailed, and the men who replaced them died long ago, and she was left on her own.

 

Wilderness suited her, in a way—it pleased her to be her own mistress and suffer only the feet of animals and wayfarers.

 

When the hobbits came, they awakened old shadows of memories, glimpsed so dimly that she did not know, at first, what was happening.

 

It wasn’t until the ploughs first raked her flesh that she recalled what it meant to be subdued.
