A Father's Failure

- Dinledhwen & Silivren Ithildin

Why, I wonder, could I not see
both of my sons more clearly?
Boromir, who was my first born,
in the end would become quite torn.
For when tested, his strength did fail,
now he will live on only in a tale.
My Faramir, who was born last
was clearly more up to the task.
His near death changed my heart's tune
after losing Boromir too soon.
Why, I wonder, could I not see
both of my sons more clearly?
