Story Notes:

This is a very late fill for two different challenges from back in April, not posted until now because I couldn't stop fiddling with it. The lotr_community challenge for April 2017, Ode to Arda, was to write an ode about "any aspect of Arda: nature, characters, history, special places or events, etc." incorporating a provided pair of rhyming words, though they didn't have to rhyme in the poem. My word pair was sing/wing.

This was also inspired by the Legendarium Ladies April poetry prompt for April 10th, “Sappho’s Reply” by Rita Mae Brown.

The meter and rhyme scheme, though not the style, are based on the odes of John Keats.
