MEANDERING THROUGH SICK GREEN



Zitat
Quick is the pace,
Within a one-time realm of grace,
Beneath branches and soaring birds,
Whose beauty is seldom caught by hymns and words.

A jewel, deep inland,
As a treasure, buried and hidden in the sand,
Ever-guarded by bow and swift arrow,
Once merry in the hour of a yester-morrow.

Ruined and marred,
From easy voyage are strangers barred,
Peril awaits, lurking in night,
Sunny mornings became so rare a sight.

The king has moved north, founding a safer domain,
The forest got ill, struck by an unknown bane,
Meandering through sick green,
So do sentinels, hoping that just shall ultimately win.

HUMMING



Zitat
Humming is the sound of war,
Not vivid yet, not as the crimson stain of gore,
That will water rivers and plains,
Should the abyss release its banes.

Until the hour shall we shed no tear,
Ere darkness casts its veil shall foretell the seer,
How morn and eve are to eclipse,
Leaving but sheer anguish, in much ominous glimpse.

Humming will be the trumpet of battle,
Calling for contest, neither feigned nor subtle,
At the ending chapter of the book,
When any hope the gentle side forsook.

So will all occur,
Many light and fairness forswore,
For none had dared come forth,
Either from scorching South or chilling North.

WAVE EMPRESS



Zitat
Bowing tides to thy ship,
Scolding waters as fierce whip,
Kings and queens between bliss and death,
Gifting life with vital breath.

Thou, five-point Isle,
Champion of the right, never of the vile,
Hold the sceptre of might, now thine,
Older and much wiser, gallant and fine.

LOOSE HOOF



Zitat
Loose hoof,
Thatched roof,
Eventually freed,
By a hero's creed.

Wanderers came from abroad,
Brighter days were to forebode,
A wise sage and his staff,
Speaking wisdom and teaching craft.

The horse's hour is yet to show,
The vile wizard shall not his grip forgo,
Upon the black tower,
Beacon of bolt, once garden of flower.

Be cursed, liar,
Master of iron and fire,
Moulder of steel and blade,
Waste to the green fold you laid.

SUCH GLARE



Zitat
Such saving glare,
Behold, how radiant a flare!
Light then pierces skies and night,
Routing the masters of the unright.

Shadows retreat and fade away,
Now is Dark but a far old tale,
A silent murmur in the loud wind,
Sun triumphs after heroes smote the fiend.

A DRAKE IN THE SHIRE



Zitat
Flies a drake in the Shire,
Of light, sparkle and fire,
For the awe of peasants and squires,
In the land of jolly vibes and no sires.

Fireworks and magic tricks,
Beer is never enough and from pints ever leaks,
Songs and laughter, to fill blank and grief,
Content to rejoice at life and welcome relief.

EVER-LASTING STRAIN



Zitat
Man envies what he's not to own,
Immortal life by human fate has not been sown,
Ages of death and loss have since flown,
For all a last wind shall have been blown.

Spring cannot be forever,
Leaves always part from trees and bonds sever,
Never has dawn been eternal day,
But in the western realm of the Lords who any thing may.

But, wrong would be to elect despair,
To call the routes of Men callous and unfair,
For a mystery lies beyond and above,
Past the bounds of space and love.

A gift bestowed the One upon the late,
The awoken Children after much wait,
Weary, feeble and suffering bane,
Yet free to go and avoid the ever-lasting strain.

GRAND LAKE OF GONE TIME



Zitat
Abode the High in a lake,
Once, when much they were still to make,
To craft and shape beneath a sky bygone,
Of order and peace Gods were fond.

Symmetry, whilst all was well,
No shadow cast on joy,
Neither was there scheme, nor ploy,
An isle guarded from fell.

There dwelt the bright,
Bathing in the ancient day,
Of greatness and grandiose might,
Not even recalled in Elven lay.

Until the Lamps crumbled,
And storms raged and thunder rumbled,
Ice and fire broke the spring,
In nefarious night and on death's wing.

FOR WANT OF GREAT



Zitat
For want of great,
Shalt thou strive and seek?

Not burdened or late,
Ever-prompt and never weak.

Thou dost justice and honour,
To choose a route of danger.

Albeit siding with fellows of vigour,
A woodland prince and a gallant ranger.

Whom ye war against must be such fiend,
A potent lord of dark.

Fire shall be fed by nasty wind,
Where lies prosper as infamy's vivid mark.

Fellowship, be thy courage enough,
To outlive terror and dread.

When the road goeth rough,
Strength for the living, pity for the dead.

ISLAND OF IN-BETWEEN



Zitat
She carried them across,
Past pain, peril and much loss,
Those awoken under the stars,
When Arda already bore its scars.

She was raised from the deep,
Risen for the sake of all who weep,
Brought to the holy home they had to be,
Via the fresh ways of the Great Sea.

The Marine King sang and storms hushed,
Tempest got quiet and elsewhere dashed,
An isle from the blue was used as vessel,
To take Immortals thither, with no haste or hustle.

Then were those rocks anchored before the saint-shore,
Partaken in bliss and divine lore,
The Lonely Island, in-between,
Which exiles fain shall have seen.

MEMORY OF HOW IT WAS



Zitat
Remembrance of old,
Treasure of gold,
Well was all to fare,
Wind would strip trees bare.

Kings and Queens of yonder,
Seas the two shores did not sunder,
The door was still open,
As ill befell the world too often.

Is the past to be yearned again?
For any wise immortal and proud man,
Will the present shift for worse?
Or has the good the chance to undo the curse?

Gone foes might come anew,
The spectre of war too close drew,
The Mount of Doom roars now and demands blood,
To trap the gentle in gore and mud.

A LANCE TO SAVE



Zitat
Wield some iron of great,
A lance to save the fate,
Piercing horrid flesh,
To slay demons and slash.

Ride fast, my knight,
Once exile, now herald of might,
Banished no longer,
Flouting traitor and warmonger.

Fierce son of the meadow,
Too long have you trodden ways of shadow,
Whilst the king appeared cold,
And numb and so easy to mould.

Albeit spell and wicked charm,
Causing fear and much harm,
Your fellows were never to doubt,
That you'd return and just sedition shout.

LOVELY STONES



Zitat
Lovely stone,
Lying lone,
Now forlorn,
An armour worn.

To shield the broad North,
From peril coming forth,
From thick ice and hail,
Which soul tortured and dealt pain.

Lovely ruin,
Undone by doing,
Of a foul captain of wight,
Glorying much in disorder as in fright.

Dusk then fell,
On the vanquished realm of fort and bell,
But the tower has not surrendered yet,
A new sun might rise, that shall warm frost to wet.

OUTER ROAD



Zitat
Westward, off the outer road,
For well and better to bode,
Unusual path, heading to secret,
The crossroad of remorse and regret.

Whether the grieving Elf is to long for the wide sea,
Much-present prayer in his plea,
That is yet to be said,
Drained is the soul who such burden to carry had.

Fore-known he had this end,
Worldly flaws none can mend,
Men may still prosper and grow in shadow,
The Firstborn cannot, lest happy maiden be rendered widow.

Immortal blood must take the way of waves,
Order above all the just Elda craves,
The road gives nought to others,
Death-ridden ones should then aid akin brothers.

DELUSION



Zitat
He who goes beyond the frontier,
Far and way easier,
One would think,
In the calm Hobbit-world to sink.

Well, traveller of afar,
With so many memories you have filled your jar,
Recalling but the pests of abroad,
Of joys, instead, here we have a load.

Hard labour we always laud,
The gentle no peril-ridden path trod,
What makes life good,
We know well, in this our quiet mood.

Delusion awaits those expecting treasure,
Abiding in the land of green and leisure,
Unless you be sure that brighter is another kind of gold,
That in folks hides, and which you may not shape nor mould.
