The Sword of Elendil

Ch. 1: Prologue: The Legend of Narsil

Hi G.A.,

I wandered over to see what was posted so far, and found this lovely prologue poem.

I very much like it: I can imagine generations of young Heirs of Isildur learning this rhyme, each one wondering if in the end he would be the one to answer the final questions and bring Narsil's history out of the legendary past and into that prophetic present opened in the last stanza. The poem very neatly encapsulates what is at stake for Aragorn in this story: his journey to from young man into Chieftain, who can answer to the eschatology of the Elder Days that has somehow always already taken him into account.

Great set up, and post more soon!
