Down in Rohan lived a scout,<BR>Tall he was, brave and stout.<BR>Much loved he the days of yore,<BR>And Freahelm is the name he bore.<BR><BR>A steed he had, and a spear too,<BR>For times of need he had a bow of yew.<BR>But now he turns his feet toward rest,<BR>And comes to the boards that he knows best.
