Era: 1st Age   Genre: Poetry  Completion: Complete
This is my attempt at Old English prosody - an 8 beat line divided by a ceasura, but linked by alliteration. The two stressed words of the first half line alliterate with the first stressed word in the second half line; plus use of kennings - a compound of two words in place of another. Eg: 'sea' becomes whale-road MITHRIL AWARDS 2005 - WINNER, best poetry - short form

The Sons of the Steward each know very well what would please the other. (Originally inspired by the prompt 'saddlebags' at the LJ drabble comm: tolkien_weekly, this story was a birthday gift for Fileg.) I should perhaps note that Melleth's world has expanded from the orginal (started some years ago) and now takes in the world of 'Prince of Horses, Lord of Stone'. Between the two are some inconsistences that I hope one day to iron out in the edit, but they can still be read side by side - s...

From one passing into the West to one who waits behind. There are those who want the poem to refer to a specific couple and those who think they should be anonymous - to me they epitomise the inevitable loss and longing of Middle-earth. Make of it what you will.

This was a charming little moment in that family. I enjoyed Barahir's reluctance and the fact that not even the great heroes get it right the first time. :-)

Ch. 44: The Nature Of Healing

While I dearly love this story, I am deeply saddened that Eomer and Elladan died.

Who will rule Rohan now if Faramir is to be the prince of Ithilien?
