Helms Deep

by Jun 11, 2004Poetry

The world is devoid of light
No hope shines through the dark
There is no way that we can win
The army massed before us
Is a hundred thousand strong
Too many of us are
Too young or too old to fight
But hark, a horn of elven make
Rings out upon the darkness
An elven army sent by elven lords
They come to honor the treaty
Of Elves and Men, from long ago
Elves and Men together now, await the battle
Hope has pierced the darkness,
For the fate of Helms Deep
