As the Ring Takes Hold

As I look upon the ring,
a power grows within.
A sharp cry with a poisoning sting,
my heart starts to feel weary and so thin.
-Queen of Gondor

Bilbo Baggins

Bilbo Baggins
Is a thief!
Lovely precious gone!
Burglar, that's all he is,
Old hobbit Burglar, that's all.

- Vison

Frodo Baggins

Friend of Elves,
Rich in Wisdom;
Our world is saved by his
Deeds. His life is gone,
Our lives are safe.
- Vison


She lies in wait....

Her hunger patient...

Eyes piercing the darkness......

Legs poised to move quickly....

Orcs are her standard fare.......

But now something sweeter approaches her lair....
- Mr. Underhill

an acrostic
The Queen of Spiders

She was the daughter of Ungoliant
Her lair dark, silken webs across the door
Evil deceit was her hateful way
Long years she brooded and was bored
Only the very foolish came near this giant
Biting and stinging her unwary prey
- Shelob

orc poem
Orcs of course
are foul creatures,
their horrid teeth
are their best features.

Their skin is tough,
they smell real foul,
they spit when they talk,
and howl when they prowl.

They have strange names
like Grisnack and Uglûk,
and we wantsss to hates them
but we love their pluck.

We laugh when they cry
we cry when they snicker
but without them all
the plot would be...thinner.
(what? you expected something else LOL?)
- boriel

For Shadowfax
Mane streaming
White coat shining
Hoofs pound the earth as
the swift one takes flight

Orc-host Parade

Hauntingly! Jauntingly!
Laughter that serenades
wickedness! Iron shod
March of the Grave feeders!
Orc-draught from Orc-slaughter
Power the Hobbbit pair.
Lost in their Dark dispair.
Uruk-Hai, Slave Breeders!
- Doctor Gamgee

Denethor, Denethor
Looked in a Palantir,
Met there with Sauron, and
Saw only doom.

Madness has captured the
House of Anarion.
Flames leaping high, Gandalf
Closes the tomb.
- Eilenach

For all mearas
The thrill of flight without leaving the ground,
like a horse set free, eyes on open field,
digs in his heels and runs.
- halavana


Frodo the hobbit,
brave is thee,
move very sly,
swiftly among the trees

The ring-bearer are you,
going against Sauron,
Using your wits,
to out-smart that moron!

The cracks of doom,
alone stand keen,
throw in the ring,
and you'll be set free!

- Sauron's Rite-hand-man

I am losing myself
to the darknes

*your hand touches mine*

Together, we are going into horror and fear.
You know Death waits for us on this Road,
but you will not leave me.

Sometines I wish you were not here
Then I could lay down and die.

But we are together
So I squeeze your hand and
we go on.

A Tribute to Dominic Monaghan

To many of us
you seemed to have appeared
from out of no where.
On that big screen
in the Fellowship of the Ring
you brought our Merry to life.
But as time moved on
I learned of the road
that you took to get
to where you are now.
After Sixth Form College
you got your first break
As a teenaged shop-lifter
turned private eye named Geoffrey
in Hetty Wainthropp Investigates.
Then there was Sasha.
Young, innocent Russian submarine sailor
who watched helplessly as a friend
sacrificed his life to save the rest of the crew
in Hostile Waters.
poor, misunderstood Etienne.
To quote Legolas:
"For me the grief is still too near"
The emotions you brought to that role
in Monsignor Renard
always bring this she-elf to tears.
That brings us to This is Personal
with you as Jimmy Furey.
I wish I could tell the tale,
but, alas, I'm not from the UK
and still have yet to find it
here in the US.
And now, as the cliché goes,
All that hard work has paid off.
You've gotten your big break
and are one of the stars
in our beloved LOTR.
May your acting career road
Go ever on and on

- Legolas74

Une Poem de Gollum, j'aime

(a warped variation on a not very well known poem by an author whose name eludes me, [muffled cackle])

Gollum is my very best friend
He is always nice to me.
Many times we sit and hiss
Or jump about in senseless glee.
He might be a bit slow to get my jokes
And slippery when we hug
But Gollum's my very best friend
Slinky bug.

- Elethril

A poem for our Aragorn

Infant child so young and fair,
what does your future hold.
Dunedaian, Mortal, Isildur's heir,
Kept safe within the elven fold.

Estel the Elves called you,
Thorongil had the wanderer's feet.
"Chieftan" the rangers hail you,
In Lothlorien, you did Arwen meet.

Ranger "Strider" Wizard's friend,
Sitting in an inn at Bree.
Waiting for Gandalf's lonely errand,
Waiting patiently on a Hobbit plus three.

To the Hobbit you did swear your sword,
To save Middle-earth you'd give your life.
An heir of kings, an exiled Lord,
Your fondest dream, Arwen as your wife.
- Suzie Sheelf & Magic Dreamer

very strong
never Ceasing


Heavy, Powerful
Power over all
Cruel in the shadows
- Peregrine

For Billy

May blackest velvet of the night
With silver stars that shine,
Look down upon you, Billy
And with sweetest dreams entwine.
- Lady of the Shire

To Frodo!

Black Riders
Thump, thump, thump
They creep through day and night
Clop, clop, clop
To fight an evil fight
Thump, thump, thump
In black they dress to hide
Clop, clop, clop
Their ghostly forms inside

When they'll come, you never know
What they'll do, you cannot woe
When you see them run and hide
Frodo fears them from inside

Thump, thump, thump
They always feal the ring
Clop, clop, clop
Put it on and you'll hear them sing
Thump, thump thump
They scream in the night, songs aloud
Clop, clop, clop
They feal the ring, to its power their bound

When they'll come, you never know
What they'll do, you cannot woe
When you see them, run and hide
Frodo fears them from inside

Thump, thump, thump
The Black Riders or Nazgul so called
Clop, clop, clop
Mounted on black horses, with bodies mauled
Thump, thump, thump
Beware of them dear Frodo
Clop, clop, clop
They will kill you, this I know

When they'll come, you never know
What they'll do, you cannot woe
When you see them, run and hide
Frodo fears them from inside

- LegolasPointyEaredBowTwanger

Verses for Merry

Merry of Buckland
Heir to the Master
Leads forth his friends
To avoid much disaster.

"You can trust us to stick to you
Through thick and thin"
And indeed he'd be willing
To protect 'til the end.

Faithful this friend
To Frodo's great quest
Each path to survey
Each stranger to test.

His path went with Frodo
and Pippin and Sam
Through miles on forward
West and South lands.

Rivendell was
To be the last leap.
But he chose to press on
His friends he would keep.

He pressed on with diligence
Faithful and true,
Contributing companionship,
Intelligence, too.

It was his persistance
To press to the end
That fixed his broken will
After Amon Hen.

A loss of a new friend
A journey with an old
Brought them to Fangorn
Treebeard to behold.

Flotsam and jetsam
And Gandalf the White
And off to Rohan
Full of brand new insight.

He pledges allegiance
To a father and King
And soon he would ride
With the great Rohirrim.

A battle-worn body
And a tears from more loss
His heart sank quite low
And his spirit was tossed.

But his friends returned favor
As he healed from his wounds
His dearest friend Pippin
Lifted spirits anew.

The Ring was destroyed
No help from his sword?
No, think again,
For Merry deserves an award.

For his friends he would do it;
Would fight, kill, or die,
On his faithful leadership
His friends still rely.

Leading back to the Shire
His magnificence waxed great
Bringing hobbits together
To change their weak fate.

Now known is his leadership
Throughout Hobbit-kind
And Men still exault him
For his bravery and mind.

But he only did what
He thought was the best
To protect his dear friends
And hold off the rest.

To Merry, Magnificent,
Faithful and true
We lift our thanks up
for the things you did do.
