A Love Song to Middle-Earth in Spring by Himring

[Comments - 1] Printer

Summary:

A song that could have been sung by anyone after the first rising of the Sun, really-- but maybe particularly by Beren himself, from whose song this piece is adapted, or by Aragorn, since he seems to have liked the Lay of Leithian, from which Beren's song is taken?

Story Notes:

LoTR Community Challenge: Lyrical Love (a short poem about non-romantic love)
Elements: Triolet (poetic form)

A (hopefully correct) triolet, plus a second triolet-like 7-line stanza, based around lines from Beren's song as quoted in the Silmarillion (but obviously avoiding any romantic reference to Luthien!)

The poem has received a nomination for the Tree & Flower Awards 2015 at the LOTR Community on LiveJournal, for which much thanks.
