Shield Maiden

by Jul 5, 2005Poetry

Why can’t seasons move
As swiftly as the sea –
As if the world were ended
The night is all I see.

An echo of the moonlight
Upon the oaken grove
Hath such become an emblem
Of what desire chose.

Yet I would give my lifetime
If a cause could be;
That promis’d people freedom
From the wrath I see.

And so I fight for glory,
For honour and for pride,
Forever shall remember
The day Theoden died.
