Frodo and Sam – A poem.

by Jul 1, 2002Poetry

As he watched Shelob attack
Gollum jumped onto Sam’s back
He should have killed him there and then
but felt much pity in the end,
He saw his master being bit,
he ran and stabbed her really quick.
She went off limping to her lair
and he saw Frodo lying there.
He took the ring and vial with fear
and whispered into Frodo’s ear
‘Goodbye master, my dear!
Forgive your Sam, he’ll come
back when the job is done’
With that he left him lying there
feeling sad, and in despair.
Sam was sad but in the end
actually had helped his friend.
The orcs that found him in the dark.
Took all but Frodo’s pride and heart.
Being brave Sam followed them,
He went to the tower to find
his friend, his dear master.
The orcs were dead all except one
who lead sam to a room
and there he sat and thought
a tune with no words in heart.
When suddenly words came to him,
He sang them loud and clear,

‘In western lands beneath the Sun
the flowers may rise in Spring,
the trees may bud, the waters run,
the merry finches sing.
Or there maybe ’tis a cloudless night
and swaying beeches bare
the Elven-stars as jewels white
amid their branching hair.

Though here at the journey’s end I lie
in darkness buried deep
beyond all towers strong and high,
beyond all mountains steep,
above all shadows rides the Sun
and Stars for ever dwell:
I will not say the day is done,
nor bid the Stars farewell.’

As Frodo sang them back to him,
an orc climbed up the stair,
began to whip him
but in a flash poor Sam reached there.
And with a mighty yell
the orc was frightened and he fell
out of a window steep.
Frodo and sam disguised as Orcs
for the journey that was left.
Through the land of mordor
they would cross,
and finally, get rest.
