Luthien by Filat Luthien by Filat
The chestnuts on the turf had shed
their flowering candles, white and red;
there darkling stood a silent elm
and pale beneath its shadow-helm 
there glimmered faint the umbels thick
of hemlocks like a mist, and quick
the moths on pallid wings of white
with tiny eyes of fiery light
were fluttering softly, and the voles
crept out to listen from their holes;
the little owls were hushed and still;
the moon was yet behind the hill.
Her arms like ivory were gleaming,
her long hair like a cloud was streaming,
her feet a-twinkle wandered roaming 
through misty mazes in the gloaming;
and glowworms shimmered round her feet,
while moths in moving garland fleet
above her head went wavering wan -
all this the moon now looked upon,
uprisen slow, and round, and white
above the branches of the night. (c) The Lay of Leithian

How stunning and beautiful picture! Do I see a hemlock there? It's really nice - many people forget about it, but I think that Tolkien wouldn't write about it if it hadn't been important for him.
PS: I hope you will understand my English :( (Sad)

Stunning. It gives a snapshot of starlit Beleriand before the Wars and the rising of the Sun and the Moon. She must've performed this dance many, many times before we first hear (of) it ... !!

I recognized your beautiful watercolour painting style when I saw that one~ This is so wonderful <3 <3
I love her pose, the light white fabric dancing around here, the sunbeams on the forest, the details of the wild flowers...
So much beauty and grace~
