Frodo's Eyes

Frodo's Eyes
twinkle and sparkle.
An amazing blue like the sky
on a beautiful clear spring day.

Look deep, they are like
tiny solar eclipses
that sizzle with
their own inner radiance.

At times they seem
to be filled with innocence,
like one who's heart
is totally pure.

Yet, at other times
they shine with pure mischief,
and you know
here's a fun-loving Hobbit.

By the end of the journey
to destroy the One Ring
Frodo's eyes
reflect his heart's pain.

No more to
shine with innocence
and rarely
with mischief.

Now looking into
Frodo's eyes
you see the devastation
the journey wrought..
