    A Short Poem on Mithrandir

    I love Gandalf above all else that Tolkien created, for many reasons, and a short while ago I wrote a quick little poem that I quite liked so I thought I would share it with you all. Here it is.

    In times like these,
    when the air is heavy
    and the sky grey;
    when the Sun is blotted out
    by black clouds of smoke and desperation,
    and when my heart is buried under immovable debris
    cast down from the frozen peaks of solitude and mourning,
    I look for the Grey Wanderer,
    that he may stir in me only hope.
    For in hope all burdens are lifted,
    the air becomes clear,
    and the Sun shines again.



    ​Tell me what you think!
    The hands of the king are the hands of a healer, and so shall the rightful king be known.

    Well, I think this poem is a lovely tribute to a wonderful character and speaks volumes about the talent that lies in you.

    It makes me think of today, real life and while we go through our lives hoping there are Gandalfs that have the determination to help with the things we don't get around to fighting for Thanks DerBerggeist

    I'm very impressed DerBerggeist. I've never been much of a poet myself so appreciate the efforts of those who try.
    If you don't mind, I'd like to try and construct a few lines of my own in appreciation of Gandalf as I share your sentiments on his character!
