Story Notes:

"Two Epitaphs": two short poems--one about the death of Morwen, wife of Hurin, the other about the death of Rian, wife of Huor. The two were cousins; exiles from Dorthonion, they both saw their new life in Dor-lomin destroyed by the Nirnaeth Arnoediad, in different ways, with different consequences.
