7. Helm's Deep

Came the host hastening, the King's men, to Hornburg,
followed close by foes and flame in the night.
Bitter was the battleplay, bold the defenders,
but fell foes were many and warriors too few:
came orcs creeping twice into the culvert;
down came the Deeping Wall by Saruman's devilry.
Théoden King took counsel then in the keep;
Helm's horn once more in the Deep was heard.
Rode forth the Riders with the sun's rising;
death they dealt there to the dread foemen,
but soft! Silence fell at the sight of the forest;
wailing fled the Uruks beneath the waiting trees.
