Fear

A Last Elf Poem

I have never felt any fear before
While walking alone in this woodland
For my kindred were here then on this shore
Always ready to lend me a hand.

But now they have sailed to Valinor
Leaving me and this woodland behind
A place that isn’t home anymore
And my beloved trees have turned unkind.

Suddenly a twig snaps behind me
I quickly turn but see no one there
Then I hear a rustling and I flee
Wishing this was only a nightmare.
