Triolets for Eowyn

- The Foe Hammer
Eowyn's Despair

His words are poison to my ears,
but how do I escape his grasp?
Even though he understands my fears,
his words are poison to my ears.
I will not let him see my tears,
although my voice begins to rasp.
His words are poison to my ears,
but how do I escape his grasp?

Eomer's Despair

In Rohan's lands all hope is lost,
now that the King has closed his eyes.
Since age has brought an early frost,
in Rohan's lands all hope is lost.
For who feels greater treason's cost,
than kin he does not recognize.
In Rohan's lands all hope is lost,
now that the King has closed his eyes.

Theoden’s Despair

My soul is trapped within this shell,
yet outwardly it shows no sign.
Ever searching for words to tell,
my soul is trapped within this shell.
The darkness into which I fell,
conceals my mind from reason's shine.
My soul is trapped within this shell,
yet outwardly it shows no sign.

Eowyn's Hope

I see four riders on the plain,
is there some hope within this news?
Through tears I cry like bitter rain,
I see four riders on the plain.
Can they be sent to ease our pain,
and brighten for us darker hues?
I see four riders on the plain,
is there some hope within this news?

Theoden Awakes

The spell is gone, my soul is free,
and now I stand with sword in hand.
My kin I now can clearly see,
the spell is gone, my soul is free.
The caster has no hold on me,
and soon I'll cast him from my lands.
The spell is gone, my soul is free,
and now I stand with sword in hand.

Eomer's Joy

My Lord and King won't stand alone,
for I now hasten to his side.
No longer old or trapped on throne,
my Lord and King won't stand alone.
Cross rivers wide and hills of stone,
we come forth now to turn the tide.
My Lord and King won't stand alone,
for I now hasten to his side.
