BLACK MENACE



Zitat
Peril came and got in,
Such that Hobbits were not to win.
Hoofs passed the outer hedge,
In cruel pursuit and deadly pledge.

What might seek the fiendish knight?
What covets most the revenant wight?
Intruding inside happy green,
Sowing terror in the Unseen.

Bidden was the vile rider
To search across, stern and wider;
Carrying hatred by wicked spell
That renders all so bad and fell.

Not mere ghosts from silly jest,
But mighty foes few could best
In sword-contest or battle
Where guilt they fix and settle.

Paths are not secure,
Should you not endure
That ardent wish to chase
Unto ash-wasted ways.

MASTER AND MAIDEN



Zitat
He's Master of wood and hill
Where is no waste or chill,
Outside the aged forest
He deems his lands the dearest.

The Eldest among the living,
Afore the Children's own conceiving;
Prior to the bright Lords,
Preceding wars, battles and swords.

One day he met his lovely Maiden,
Woken brooks with flowers laden.
A gentle dweller of water,
Whom fain we hail "the River-Daughter".

King and queen of green domain
Fearing none, fancying rain.
The angry Willow shall stay his wrath,
For Jolly Tom is free to tread the path.

Along the tops of haunted mounds
One harks bewailing and shrieking sounds,
For a wicked Fiend resides in graves,
Until the Master dares such spook and stranger saves.

SEVEN PORTENTS



Zitat
He gave them seven
Inside stone-hall,
At the behest of heaven
Into the mountain wall.

Ruin befell king and sire
Dooming houses to burn,
Awaking ghoulish fire
Which roared loud and stern.

Fine tokens beseemed
The much fabled Rings;
Evil dug and schemed,
Unearthing flames and wings.

Artefacts of potent use
Which bend fate and will,
Forecasting rue and blues
Under rocks and grinding chill.

Seven portents that never caught
Of gallant dwarf the wit,
Stirring thenceforth blazing draught
From within the darkest pit.

TESTAMENT OF COURAGE



Zitat
'Tis a testament for you,
My dear one.
A letter sent through
Among mage and man.

Hereby I confess
That toiled am I for real,
But events also bless
Who wills to sign a deal.

A deal have I underwritten,
Which brought the humble far,
Into adventure smitten,
Leaving the door ajar.

Three brute trolls were not enough
To hinder us and scare;
Though the road was rough,
Defied have we the journey's wear.

Grand battle I then fought
Beside valiant host and beast,
Ending up distraught
For woeful loss and bloody feast.

FOREMOTHER OF LORE



Zitat
Under boughs of young age,
Recalled in history by sage,
Stood a singing maid
Who used in ancient stream to wade.

Deathless as the eternal star
Whose fairness nought may mar.
Bright stone of a tainted world,
Hewn from purity and gold.

Joy to her king and queen,
Rulers of ways amidst green
And deep cavern beneath the earth,
Where reigned remembrances of mirth.

Untrodden paths she set alight
Dispelling anguish and fright.
Alongside reeds she found
One to whom she would be bound.

Side by side in speed and ruin,
Her song of demons was great undoing.
Piping fowls shall tell
How gentile vanquished fell.

SECURED FORD



Zitat
Hurry, rapid stainless knight!
In pure glimmering white
You ride to pass the ford
Within the sight of mighty lord.

Ghouls pursue the Ruling Ring
Which harpers loathe and seldom sing
Without mourning such impetuous tide,
That tore the world and its gentle side.

What was of the prosperous West,
Between loud waves and mountain crest?
Lie now but ruined remains,
Of grandness signs amid dark lanes.

Hasten, bright sire!
We deem it much dire
To take the bearer in,
Where lasting home avoids great sin.

The Half-Elven is versed in healing.
Bathe such dales in happy feeling,
And fears melt away as ice in summer,
And lights grow not by grace so dimmer.

A WORLD WE LEAVE



Zitat
A world we shall thus leave
In sweet autumn eve,
When winds patter trees
And furtive fox then quickly flees.

An ending era we promptly hail
As just conclusion of the tale
Which buoyant bards had told of old,
When holy jewels were not of gold.

Years may faint and weary,
Days may go so dreary.
Stars shall never pale in doubt,
For every shade they clear and rout.

Immortals hearken to wise word,
Renouncing vanity and sword,
And therefore yield fort and earldom
For the final reaching of the Eternal Kingdom.

Thither they are to fare,
Where is no grieving wear.
Cheerful lies ahead the undying shore,
Secured by Lords that came afore.

THE ADVENT OF NIGHT



Zitat
Was the advent of night
So sudden and swift,
Commencing storm and plight
That leave the ship adrift.

A nefarious ghost arose
Over the guard of Men,
Strong of blades and bows
To keep the wolves' den.

The beast, alas, returned.
Eves grew black and frightful.
This the Enemy had yearned
To mar the kingdom so delightful.

His Dark Fortress he built anew.
Fires stir again and shadow beckon.
His servants plan revenge and slew
Tribes and folks beyond good reckon.

Lights subside and vanish out.
Gloom gets instead much thicker,
But in the White City standing stout
Facing foes that gather quicker.

HEART-SONG



Zitat
Warbling birds mark the day
Of happy breeze and fond sun-ray
Upon green pastures and silent glades,
While the tiny fox in water wades.

No trace of sadness we ever sense.
Sullen skies winds will cleanse.
Warmth embraces this jolly country,
Blessing its ways and kind good gentry.

May we never part
From joyous field and morning start.
May we never wail
Winter's coming and cruel hail.

I shall hence sing a tune of bliss,
Praying naught of great will run amiss.
I shall wherefore beg to see new climes,
Lesser not than those I set so fain in rhymes.

I fancy the mild Hobbit would like
A quiet walk along the dyke,
Resting ever within the end,
For perils crawl abroad and gentle hearts might rend.

O FOWL, O GALE



Zitat
O fowl soaring,
May you head afar
From foul storm roaring,
Overcasting sky and star.

O strong boreal gale,
Fly and blow much deep!
Your winds shall rid the dale
Of sombre cry and weep.

Tiny singer on feeble wing,
Do not wane alone or swoon
Before fang and sting
Roaming loose beneath the moon.

Breath of howling air,
Send relief to the troubled South;
Thereto shall you fare
To hammer foes and hit the uncouth.

Men will see merrier days
To live and fill with mirth,
When telling Gondor's lays
And of gallant kings the birth.

HALL OF FIRE



Zitat
Part of Elrond's cheerful house,
Past barrows, hills and brows,
Is a hall of olden lore
Where sages sing what passed afore.

Gathered beside the fire
Stands no shameless liar,
For tales are told in ancient tongue
And harps in guile are never wrung.

Elven minstrels muse on grief,
Being of yore-events the chief.
Songs of sorrow are calmly spoken
Which call for caution and gloom foretoken.

Valiant heroes are brought to life,
Whose grim memory and strife
We honour well and truly fain
Within the stainless fair domain.

Prayers invoke the holy Power
That yonder dwells behind his tower,
Whither suns are due to wester
To flee the woes which grossly fester.

LEAD MY PROW THITHER!



Zitat
Western winds across,
May ye lead my prow well past
Such mounting strife and loss,
Carrying yonder oar and mast.

Lead me thither, beyond wan seas,
Through livid tides and raging weather.
Lead me thither, borne on breeze,
Passing waves, high and nether.

Sail, my dear white vessel
Whither mortal storms will hush,
For on deathless strand was set a castle
Which nought of ill might ever crush.

There lieth marvel of age-long sort,
Sprung in the Day afore days and lore.
Mighty halls and unsullied fort
Raised and blessed on the immortal shore.

Antique Occident, such thy Rulers thee render
To resist wear and pending doom;
Champions of virtue and wrights of wonder,
Who fairness drew from Arda's womb.

CHILLING RIDERS



Zitat
Monstrous minions have been sent
For heinous murder meant,
At the behest of night,
Bestirring so such dread and fright.

At their passing spring recedes.
Freeze in instant dew and beads.
Robins stay and hover still,
Stunned in fear and sudden chill.

Yeomen bolt amok or start,
Rent in depth and stung at heart.
Light thoughts then fade away
And darkens bleak the jolly day.

Ghoulish serfs are they for real;
Long ago was made the deal
That binds the wraith to ruthless will,
Bidden then to chase and kill.

Wights were once renowned lords,
Trusted much in acts and words,
Until nine heirlooms they were given
By cunning hand from the Uneven.

TOLLING TROUBLES



Zitat
Hear bells tolling trouble.
Hear dread consuming marble.
A black host is to advance
And begin of rueful death the dance.

Grievous sighs climb and swathe
Onto ramparts, wont to bathe
In radiant rays of full content,
As kings decreed and valour meant.

Strong southern bastion,
It is no doubt or question
That vicious foes you fight
From lowest gate to imposing height.

Demons seek dismay to sow;
Darkly colours go in row
And sail ahead to plunder ports,
Since guards no longer man their forts.

Walls might not resist the storm.
Evil takes so foul a form.
Desirous is the beast of tears
In tragic tell of ancient seers.

FOES AND SPOOKS



Zitat
Ring the bell, gatekeeper!
Came the intruding sneaky sweeper
Inside wood-fences and quiet town,
To pierce one's heart and drag it down.

Phantoms we too have heard;
Beasts have screeched and fled the bird
Before such fiendish stranger,
Like fatal mare of ranger.

Bidden to search and seek,
For great scorn of harmless weak,
Something dear to darkling wills
Which folly stirs by eerie thrills.

Shadows fall upon the roofs.
Closer draw some running hoofs,
Willing much to claim their prey
Past tended fields and sun-dried hay.

Foes and ghouls have broken in!
Likeness none could ever win.
Passing plains and country brooks,
Thence rode in haste these vicious spooks.
