Hobbitwise

Sam Gamgee, braveheart he!
Faithful and trustworthy
Follows his Master there
Into Mordor
Peeks through the bay tree leaves
Catching his breath, he sees
Oliphantasticly
Legends that roar


Frodo-centric
Ringbearer, Ringwearer
In the Shire, no fairer
Hobbit is there to find
Chosen by Fate
To convey the Ring to Doom
Withstanding heat and gloom
Mordorendurable
Isn't he great?


Berian-tales
Halflings fair, halfling pair
Merry and Peregrin
Dancing on table top
Acting like hams
Though they are capering
Their hopes are tapering
Despair'nveloping
Frodo and Sam


Gollumeter
Slinkerful, stinkerful
Disarming pitiful
Inserts himself with his
Masterful guile
Frodo can't guess that he's
Shelob's accessory
Extracurricular
Arachnophile


The Fly
Hobbit dear, fights his fear
With glass of starlight clear
Escapes from the tunnel
With horror strung
Runs to the darkened cleft
He has got no luck left
Arachnographicly
Frodo is stung

top

Frodo-lad, odo-cad
Best hobbit in the Shire
Wizard agreed with me
You are my heir
I must away from here
Escape the relatives
Adventuristicly
Going back there



Isildur, twizledur
Got the Ring from Sauron
He claimed it for himself
Ages ago
He met a sticky end
Travelling Rhovanion
Aquamortality
Sinks like a stone


Frodo B, bodofree
Ringbearer, woe to thee
Carrying doom to the
Nasty One Ring
Makes his way carefully
Vulcanocentrically
Sacrificed fatefully
Returning the King

top

Two for Merry

Meriadoc, Meriadoc
Brandybuck, tummy-tuck
Flees from the Shire with
Frodo in tow
Came clean on the spying
Vigil on the One Ring
Uberconspirator
Fessing up now


Brandybuck, Brandybuck
Hobbit with all the luck
Gets himself enlisted
For the One Quest
Goes along just as mapped
'Til he is hobbit-napped
retroadventurous
Could use a rest!




Primula, Primula
Poetic muse stimu-la
Tickle my funny bone
With humourous verse!
Tho I've had a rotten day
You take all my grumps away
Intoxi-hysterically
Lifting my curse!


response by Primula:

Lothithil-pothithil
Coffeehouse versing queen,
Percolates poetry
Filled with caffeine.
When rhyme must circumvent,
She will simply invent
Lothiuniqueical
Words for the scene.
