In Memory

<p> All of Middle Earth fell still,<br /> As he walked the shores,<br /> To the great gray ships that had,<br /> Sailed from valinor.<br /> <br /> They all had come to see him off,<br /> His passing to his blushing bride,<br /> But their pace was slow and grim,<br /> And lengthened every stride.<br /> <br /> This beautiful world,<br /> Would be so dim,<br /> After he was<br /> To leave with them.<br /> <br /> The elves, and hobbits,<br /> The men of old,<br /> The dwarves in caverns<br /> Deep and cold,<br /> <br /> They all had come<br /> To bid farewell,<br /> Even the Great Eagle&#8217;s<br /> Silver tears fell.<br /> <br /> And mixed upon<br /> The salty shores,<br /> With those whose tears,<br /> Could not reach Valinor.<br /> <br /> He was a friend,<br /> A poet a writer,<br /> And now, without his song,<br /> The world would seem much quieter.<br /> <br /> He had created<br /> This wonderful land,<br /> Had dreamed it all up<br /> With his pen in his hand.<br /> <br /> But all of the creatures<br /> Were excited for him,<br /> Because they knew,<br /> His tale was both happy and grim.<br /> <br /> Even some of his<br /> Collage companions were there.<br /> And then he saw her,<br /> Edith, with her fair hair,<br /> <br /> Like a halo<br /> About her shone,<br /> She beckoned him her way,<br /> He would not journey alone.<br /> <br /> He turned to gaze<br /> upon the land<br /> That God had created<br /> Through his hand.<br /> <br /> And though he now had to leave,<br /> And the journey would be hard,<br /> This lands story had just begun,<br /> And his way would not be barred.<br /> <br /> He was a friend,<br /> A man full of fame<br /> A teacher, a creator,<br /> But the Havens called his name.<br /> <br /> And all of middle earth fell still,<br /> As he walked the shores,<br /> To the great gray ships that had,<br /> Sailed from valinor.</p><p><br /> </p>
