No Date


A tragic triolet for Eowyn, inspired by the Encyclopedia of Arda note that the date of her death is not recorded. Blood-of-Numenor Faramir would have outlived her, I think. He lived to 120.

No Date

I love words but can't write this date
Grief stills my mouth and writing hand
My blood betrays me to this fate
I love words but can't write this date
She has gone and I linger late
She leaves me here for the bright land
I love words but can't write this date
Grief stills my mouth and writing hand
