The following inscription is found at the head of the score:
Simbelmynë are fictional flowers from the writings of J.R.R. Tolkien. These flowers, which are grown on graves, are called “Evermind.” Despite the similarities of this name to “forget- me-nots,” they are compared to Anemone nemorosa. Other names for these flowers are “uilos,” “alfirin,” and possibly “golden bells.” These flowers, connected to death and memory, bring to mind the disappearance of things.
