The River Spirit

…The air grew warmer between the green walls of hillside, and the scent of turf rose strong and sweet as they breathed. Turning back when they reached the bottom of the green hollow, they saw Goldberry, now small and slender like a sunlit flower against the sky: she was standing still watching them, and her hands were stretched out towards them. As they looked she gave a clear call, and lifting up her hand she turned and vanished behind the hill.
~The Fellowship of the Ring

She is the daughter of the river. She is the flower queen of enigmatic origin, whose presence is a chimera. One of the most mesmerizing fictional characters that I have come across . . .
