Seeking Frodo, up the hill, did nothing to ease his worry and pain.
Their short palaver only exasperated the Captain General till all
reason left him, mad.
Throwing himself upon his face trying to capture the Ring by force,
quickened his wits.
The chase down the hill brought him into the glade beholding Merry and
Pippin in peril.
Defying the odds, fifty to one, he joined the fray with zeal, focusing
his anger against the common foes.
Encircling him at length, the cowards drew their bows.
His end now near, he longed for home, the ringing of trumpets could
Bilbo catered to a house full of Dwarves, a Wizard, and followed them
into the unknown.
The Trolls, the Goblins, the Riddles with Gollum, the Wargs, the
Eagles, The Man-Bear, the Spiders, the Elves, the Men, the Dragon, the
War, and overcoming His own Fear.
Do I put strangers and friends needs before my own? Can I manage the
challenges along the road of life with wit and perseverance? Shall I
also find riches, sharing along the way, and give everything away at
the end of all things to gain the eternal reward of life everlasting?
Even without my pocket-handkerchief?
The Dark And The Light
a poetic drabble
Above the din of the hammer falls I could not hear myself even think.
But now alone here standing in the dark, with one torch, on the brink;
Staring out and down into the darkness, I find that I miss,
The broad sunny Plain of Rohan, and riding with Legolas.
Our bouts of jest and rancor, I recall now with a sigh.
His deft use of bow and shaft so often saved my life.
I would trade all the Mithril and jewels, in this whole vast mine,
To be one day with that Pointy-Eared Elf, that dear friend of mine.

The dew-laden moss was pleasing to the eye and foot as the sweet pine
scent was to the nose.

with Frodo, Merry, Pippin, and Fatty Bolger.

Mr. Frodo, I mean is it a big and wonderful place or is it small like

“No Sam, he did not say, only that we were meet him at an inn

“My Pa tells me that it has great walls and lanes, gardens and
houses stacked three on top of another!” Merry volunteered with zeal.
“That’s impossible” Pippin smirked, punching Merry on the shoulder and
jumping ahead two steps to mind any retaliation.
“Come along Fatty, your falling behind!” Merry barked, looking over
his shoulder. “It is not far now, just passed Buck Hill and Brandy Hall
and then at Crickhollow and we are in for the night.
“Sam you've naught to fear, I'll watch over you all the way.” Frodo
"A Matter Of Heart"
(Scene; Boromir and Aragorn waiting by a small fire in Moria.)
Wizard has lost his way. I fear him Aragorn. He disregards our council.
Turning aside from the Great Road has taken the Fellowship from
calamity to disaster and now he knows not which way is out of this
reeking pit of death. I sense evil will beset us soon." Boromir softly
confided in Aragorn.
Aragorn warmed himself and drew upon his
pipe. The swirling blue smoke of Longbottom leaf was sweet in the air
offsetting the damp mold and stench of rotting flesh rising from the
dead dwarves and orcs.
"Trust him Boromir. His heart is true." Aragorn whispered.

Four months maybe five to make way back to The White City, and at the
end how shall I rest free the Ring for father and the victory of Gondor
o'er The Enemy.
"One Ring To Rule Them All"
indeed we shall rule them all.
If this Wizard was indeed useful why has he not prevailed over such
a long time? And Aragorn, what use is a woodsman save to blaze trails
and hunt? Hobbits, Elves, and Dwarves are no match for my armies.
None of these people know what Gondor has endured.
I will do my duty, for Gondor

“Do not doubt my friend. Gandalf knows
what is best. I have trusted him for many years and he has always
proved faithful and true.” Aragorn spoke in low tones to Boromir so
that the hobbits would not be concerned.
“I trust your word
Aragorn, but I fear that by delay the White City is nearer each day to
doom. A weight is upon me Aragorn. A trust was given by my father and

"His Last Wish Fulfilled"
Everything has lead up to this, guarding the Shire, hunting for Gollum,
waiting for the hobbits at Bree, and the long journey with the
Fellowship. If only Boromir were here now, he would rejoice at our
riding to the defense of the White City and our people. No longer can I
distance myself from my destiny as he foretold. Its will shall be done
and Boromir knew it and tried so hard to convince me of it, but I
continued in my blindness.
Now it comes to this, and I am glad.
We ride to ruin or a new age.
