1. In Dreams

Down it falls.

 Down, down, down…

 Huge, horrible, hateful.

 Fire and dust and blood and fear and…

 The cloud envelops me.

 All is lost- sight, sound, sense…

 I jerk upright in my bed with a shriek, the past roaring in my ears.

 Tomorrow my grandchildren will ask what I dreamt, and I will lie to them.

 I always do.

 Tomorrow my son will ask me if I am alright, and I will lie.

 I always do.

 I lie back down into my bed.

 Ancalagon is dead.

 Morgoth is defeated.

 Thangorodrim is gone.

 We won.

 We won.

 And yet…

 And yet…
