Boromir Poem

Postby Th4DwArfY1 » Thu Dec 26, 2013 4:49 pm

Well, I just joined a minute ago. This is by far not my best, but it is my only LoTR related one, so enjoy! (Said with a hint of sarcasm)

In lands of myth and olden times,
In minds and hearts of men;
There lies yet Boromir,
He who fought in Mark and Fen.

His youth and vigour have slept long now,
His blade is shrouded in rust.
But from the dead he shall rise,
And break away from dust.

His Strength was awe inspiring then,
But strength is a shadow.
His heart was big and kind;
With intentions far from shallow.

But one golden ring caught his eye,
Its gleam ensnared his mind.
His heart broke free, but stranded there
His thoughts were far from kind.

He used his strength to gain the ring,
Aghast he cried in pain.
For though his mind was caught with lust,
He knew that he was wrong.

His might was raised in vengeance!
What a sight, what a scene!
With broader strokes he fought with heart,
And saved the scared Halfling.

Alas! His sword was shattered then,
And death came swift as night;
But though his flesh was hewn and wracked,
His soul with force will fight.

Oh, come now Boromir!
Take up your shield of old.
Fight with honour, with hardened heart,
And save, defend and shield.

And sorry with joining on a sarcastic note. I usually take a Bombadil out-look on life, I swear! :)

Good job Th4DwArfY1! Very nice poem, but, if I may really say what I feel, your rhythm was not very consistent, making the poem kind of hard to read. All in all, though, a very well-written poem! - Wingi
