Vigil: Day V

Someone asked me today while I was taking a photo when it was coming down. I admitted I didn't know. But soon? He asked. I thought so, I replied.

"That was probably the last time Niggle's name ever came up in conversation. However, Atkins preserved the odd corner. Most of it crumbled; but one beautiful leaf remained intact. Atkins had it framed. Later he left it to the Town Museum, and for a long while "Leaf: by Niggle" hung there in a recess, and was noticed by a few eyes. But eventually the Museum was burnt down, and the leaf, and Niggle, were entirely forgotten in his old country." J.R.R. Tolkien Leaf by Niggle
