Thus he was carried to the Sea and back to his original mission. While the time of composition, the characters and their circumstances differ, the descriptions of the place are alike. Nan-tathren is a special place that makes travellers forget everything else, even the sea-longing that runs deep and strong in Elves and chosen mortals, but enchants them with the beauty, tranquility and the serenity of the place. It is for a large part due to the willows growing there that the region has its mesmerising atmosphere. There he called the land by its Quenya name Tasarinan or Nan-tasarion and remembered with warmth how he would roam there in spring in the First Age.
While Nan-tathren with its willows is a beauty to behold, the willows appearing in The Lord of the Rings are not so friendly and enchanting. They grew in the valley along the Withywindle river in the strangest place of the Old Forest.
It was a real kingdom of willows to the extent that is almost unsettling and creepy:. A golden afternoon of late sunshine lay warm and drowsy upon the hidden land between. In the midst of it there wound lazily a dark river of brown water, bordered with ancient willows, arched over with willows, blocked with fallen willows, and flecked with thousands of faded willow-leaves. The air was thick with them, fluttering yellow from the branches; for there was a warm and gentle breeze blowing softly in the valley, and the reeds were rustling, and the willow-boughs were creaking. It was there that Frodo, Sam, Merry and Pippin fell under the sleepy enchantment of the sinister and malicious Old Man Willow, with Frodo falling asleep and tumbling into the water and Merry and Pippin becoming trapped in the cracks of the tree.
This enchantment could be beaten off only by the song of Tom Bombadil. There he is referred to as Willow-man and is an evil character who tried to trap Tom, but did not succeed. Tom Shippey, in fact, identifies the Cherwell with the Withywindle, both in the structure of the name and appearance, reflected in the names. The Withywindle follows a similar combination. The name describes perfectly well what the river looks like and how its course runs. Willows feature in some places of Middle-earth and create a certain atmosphere of these spots.

Tolkien and the Great War, pp. He arrived there in spring, heard the song of birds and became enchanted with the region: Here the river wound in wide curves with low banks through a great plain of the sweetest grass and very long and green; willows of untold age were about its borders, and its wide bosom was strewn with waterlily leaves, whose flowers were not yet in the earliness of the year, but beneath the willows the green swords of the flaglilies were drawn, and sedges stood, and reeds in embattled array.
