Carols of Middle-earth: 7. What Ring Is This?

To the tune 'What Child Is This?' (aka Greensleeves)

What ring is this, which, laid to rest
On Frodo's floor, is sleeping?
What magic ring has hidden been
Long in Bilbo’s safe-keeping?

This, this is the Ruling Ring,
Which long the Wise have been seeking:
Haste, haste to guard it safe,
The Ring, the Bane of Isildur!

So bring it to the Elven lord,
Journey forth from the Shire
Then south you go with fellowship bold
To throw it into the fire.

Veil, veil your movements now,
With night and rock and forest bough:
Grief, grief, the Ring is found,
The Ring, the Bane of Isildur!

A/N - Boromir, of course, would probably have preferred the more nearly traditional line "The Ring of rings, salvation brings"...

Why This Story?

All of my more promising poems are lying around unfinished at the moment, so I thought I'd include my first collection of carols instead. I'm proudest of "'Twas the Night Before Yuletide", but "Let It Blow!" is the most fun!
