Eowyn's Courage


The hand I hold in mine is still
Theodred is dead
The pain his death brings me
Pierces my heart

What will the King say of this?
When he is awoken
From his bewitched state of surrender
To Wormmtongue’s poisonous mouth

Eomer is here
When he is with me
This cage is bearable
I can stand and take the humbling

But I will not stay so long
I am a Shield Maiden of Rohan!
And will not be put down
Grima will not have me

I will be free
I dream of battles and warriors
Blood upon my sword
Victory over the enemy

It will not be a dream much longer
- Eglerio Hyn
