Of LotR (MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS)

A Poem By Anna // 12/7/2007

There's a certain book that I want you to see
For I know that you're simply dying to read
Of Boromir, brave-hearted, though he was weak,
Aragorn, called Strider, born to be king,
Merry the hobbit, and Pippin his friend,
Samwise Gamgee, faithful to the end,
Gandalf the wizard, lost but then found,
Eomer and Eowyn (just one was crowned),
Legolas Greenleaf, who had bow but no sword,
And his unlikely friendship with Gimli the dwarf,
Of Frodo the Ringbearer, his burden and strife,
And the evil of Sauron, who terrorized life,
Theoden of Rohan, kind, kingly, and brave,
And his son (we don't meet him; we just see his grave)
Faramir, who didn't take the Power for himself,
Denethor, with a palantir sitting on his shelf,
Beregond the guard and his sturdy son Bergil
(They don't come in much, but I like them still),
Arwen and Elrond, elves of Rivendell,
Galadriel, another, the one with a mirror-well,
Shelob the monster (I won't tell you what she is),
Gollum, once-hobbit, slave to the Ring's whims,
Nine creatures called Nazgul, or Ringwraiths if you prefer,
Servants of Sauron, who I've mentioned before,
Saruman the White (who really was black,
He told us, 'many-colored', but don't believe a word of that),
The orcs, evil minions- What? What's that you say?
You've read the book already and you want to go away?
But I hadn't quite finished, there's so much left to cover-
Fine. Go and leave; I'll tell this to another.

I obviously didn't mean to

I obviously didn't mean to type "king, kingly, and brave" under Theoden... This thing needs spell check, seriously...

I love this! it made me

I love this! It made me laugh so hard. I know that this is kind of an old thing, but I was looking to see what you ahd written and I wondered what it was. It was great, that's what it was! Was that a racial statement about Saruman (joke. You know laugh....ha..ha,ha.....never mind). I like the part about Theoden's son's grave. And also the last part (it made me laugh and go hee hee and ha ha).

Thanks! When I said Saruman

Thanks!
When I said Saruman was black I meant black-hearted (the many-colored thing is in the book; i don't know if you've read it or not).

Yes dear (scarcastically) I

Yes dear (scarcastically) I am quite aware of Saruman words (because that's what I am). I have read the books and it made so mad that they did that thing with Aragorn falling off a cliff. I don't remember that, do you?

This might interest you; My sister and I were just shooting each other with rubber band guns. Wouldn't you love tro join us?

I dunno... the books are better than the movies in general, so I was more mad at Peter Jackson.
Though the Aragorn-falling-off-a-cliff was a nice if startling touch.

OH yes, please kidnap me. (As long as I can bring my body shield!)

Very Good!

I really liked this, Anna! You've got real talent. I love the Lord of the Rings, and the books, in my opinion, are better than the movies, although I like the movies a lot.

I like the end; it was funny.  I always liked Samwise Gamgee the best, although Aragorn is a close second.

LOVED it, Anna.

I am currently reading it and the beginning described me perfectly.

But Legolas had two swords, didnt he? Sorry, I'm just a huge Legolas fan. :)

Quite frankly, I'm not sure

Quite frankly, I'm not sure anymore about Legolas. I'm rereading the books now with my sister (also named Emily, coincidentally) and I can't find anything for or against his having a sword.

Well, he had two in the movie......but guys with bows are just as awesome. :)
