Two Acrostics for Faramir

- Shelob


Leader of Ithilien's Rangers
One more chance he gave to them
Reward enough to be kind
Death waiting for two small strangers

Forgive me father
As I break my promise
Regardless your lack of faith in me
Allowing them not to falter
My men appalled that I set them free
It makes little difference
Reality is dying for your defense


Faithful leader of his men
Always ready, his kingdom to defend
Realizing the need for difficult decisions
And granting their freedom in the end
Mighty his will to not want possession
Indeed, no dream of his desired this thing
Rather, peace and love, his ruling passion
