This is a lovely poem and highlights Adonnen's talent for using words as art. She conveys powerful imagery here, but there is also a subtlety present. She does not slap the reader in the face when Elwing poetically considers her sons, but rather, lets the reader fill in the spaces.

I'm not a free-form poetry person, but this prophetic episode is suitably enigmatic and fits nicely in its genre.

Did Elwing have foresight about the fate of her sons? In this poem she seems to be remarkably foresighted and we are shown a side of each of her twin sons in an uncommon light.
