The white grave-flower

A translation of the name simbelmynë, the name in Rohan for the small white flower that grew especially on the graves of Men. This association with the dead was the source of the flower's name - a literal translation would be something like 'everlasting memory'. In appearance, Tolkien compares Evermind to the anemone, a small white flower growing among the grass.
