Heirlooms

LotR Object: Bilbo's gifts to Frodo

Heirlooms,
Everyone has their
Own heirlooms,
Kept out of sight just waiting there,
For some mighty need
To make them more,
Than mere heirlooms.

Odd things,
A sword and mail coat,
Just small things.
An old hobbit’s treasure
Now waiting for use
In a battle unknown.
Maybe they’ll help
Turn a sharp blade
Or fight evil,
Very old things.

For many years they were
Just put away,
Fearing they’d not be used at all,
Now passing on
To a higher call.

Heirlooms,
At last will help free all the free folk,
Passing on now at the last stroke,
Heirlooms.
