The Strongbow

- Celebrian
Beleg the Strongbow,
faithful friend;
Warrior Elf of Doriath,
Thingol's guarded realm.
Beleg took in under his wing,
Túrin, the foster son of the King.
The son of Húrin
was loved by the Strongbow,
who taught him to hunt
and the ways of the wood.
Many years later,
faithful to the end,
Beleg rescued Túrin
from the hands of the Orcs.
But Túrin did not know
Beleg in the dark;
slew him with his sword
and grieved when he saw
whom he had struck.
Beleg the Strongbow,
faithful companion;
unknowingly murdered
by his own friend.
