Practical Merry

Being practical isn’t glamorous
Isn’t viewed as heroic
Seldom makes the girls swoon
Though someone must see
the details…
Know the shortcuts
See the consequences of inaction
And understand how the greater world works.

You felt the breath of fire at
Treebeard’s words
and spoke out.
Saw the King’s heart
broken and in need of an
honorable act
and you acted.
You felt the steel of Eowyn’s spine
and drew with her.

You wandered lost.
You were found.
You defended friend and country.
Read the truth plainly.

You left the glamour to others
and planted your feet firmly on
the ground.
