Rohan Haiku


Riders of Rohan
Phenomenal warriors,
Fearless in battle.

(Rohirrim)

Land of the horse-lords,
Magnificent chargers roam
Across grassy plains.

(Rohan)

Forth rode Theoden,
Upon fields of Pelennor.
He died with honour.

(King Theoden)


Royal barrow graves
Where sweet simbelmyne blossoms,
Glinting with starlight.

(simbelmyne)
-Daisy Gold

The mighty horse lords
Thundering across green plains
Moving with the wind

Untimely felled
Was Theodred of Rohan
A beloved prince

Through once misty eyes
He was awoken anew
By Gandalf the White

Oh Pelennor Fields
Crimson upon the petals
Rain washes anew

- Kaybaggins


Théoden
Golden shield gleaming -
Théoden, King of the Mark,
Honourable man

Éomer
Son of Éomund,
Weeping by a maiden fair
With brotherly love.

Rohan
Galloping horses
The trumpeting of horns;
Forth Eorlingas!

Théoden
His eyes darken,
But death hath no shame -
Théoden, son of Thengel

Éomer
Stern and fearless eyes,
Strong and valiant of heart:
Third Marshal of Riddermark

Rohan
Flag of white horse upon green,
Glint of sun on spear -
Last host of Rohan
- Fan of Faramir

A Decline and Recovery
Rohan's fortune renewed
By Angmar slain
- Theoden


A hopeless love
Martial spirit she bore
The Witch King slain
- Eowyn

Loyal and Valiant
Oath of Eorl renewed
Lothiriel wed
- Eomer

A Warrior of note
A rout at Helm's Deep
The Hornburg held
- Erkenbrand
- MithrandirCQ

Haiku for Eowyn

Unsuitable match
Reek freezes gold to shoulders
Elf Queen kisses groom.
- Beruthiel

Eomer

Mighty in battle
Loyal even though exiled
Proud horse-lord

Theoden

A King ensorcelled
Old and grey before his time
Freed by Wizard's staff
- Orangeblossom Took


Eomer to Theoden

To battle, you I follow,
Living flag, your mount graceful and white
As simbelmynë blossoms.

- Primula
