Shadow of War

- Shelob
Scent of herbs and leaves, springtime in Ithilien,
But, war's dark shadow lies over this fair land.

Captain Faramir speaks of a brothers devotion.
"Isildur's Bane could save our kingdom,
My oath would be broken to grant your freedom."

"Boromir was the favored son,
I dreamt the sound of Gondor's horn."

"And, you know more than you tell,
Of what evil fate, my brother, befell."

"Why should we spare your slinking friend,
Because of some part he may play in the end?"

"I begged to journey in his place,
Now, he has vanished without trace,
And I am fallen, from my father's grace."

Scent of herbs and leaves, springtime in Ithilien,
But, war's dark shadow lies over this fair land.
