Nine there were set out of Rivendell – A Poem of the Fellowship’s Journey

by Jul 19, 2002Poetry

Nine there were set out of Rivendell
To walk all lands to the land of hell
To take the Ruling Ring of Power
To destroy it and the Black Tower
Where the Dark Lord Sauron dwells
Awaiting auy news his spies will tell
The Ringbearer Frodo Baggins of The Shire
Destined to walk through all to the great fire
Samwise Gamgee faithful to the end
But uncertain of what awaits around the bend
Meriadoc Brandybuck cousin of Frodo
Will walk through all to the son of Drogo
Peregrin Took young and Foolish
Brave in heart and every bit hobbitish
Gandalf the Grey faithful to his cause
Journeys on and on without a pause
Aragorn or Strider as he is sometimes named
The Ring concerns him closely – Isildur’s Bane
Legolas Greenleaf great bowman he
Aware of the danger the Ring could be
Gimli the axe man of the Dwarf kindred
Swings his axe to cut off Orc heads
Boromir of Gondor strong for his kind
But the Ring of Power began to work on his mind
Nine there were set out of Rivendell
But in the Mines of Moria, Gandalf fell
To the Falls of Rauros the other eight went
There Boromir perished, all his strenght spent
Merry and Pippin captured by Orcs
Man, Elf and Dwarf followed like hawks
Frodo and Sam started for Mordor
Gollum followed to even the score
Gandalf returned in the forest of Fangorn
Where he met Legolas, Gimli and Aragorn
Merry and Pippin they once again met
At Isengard, the land and tower a bit wet
Wars they fought to give Frodo more time
Right to Mordor they went – land of crime
To the fires where the Ring was made
The Ringbearer went, strength starting to fade
In the hour when all hope had faded
The Ring died with that who unmade it
The Black Tower crumbled, it’s power gone
And with it’s destruction, a new age was born
Nine there were set out of Rivendell
To walk all lands to the land of hell
To take the Ruling Ring of Power
To destroy it and the Black Tower
And now at journey’s end eight still live
All have given all they have to give
Years passed happily after darkness fell
None had to walk all lands to the Land of hell
