Okay I think this will be cool, put down some Lord of the Rings poems you made up. Even if your not much of a writter just try and put a small Lord of the Rings poem down! (I'm not much of a writter myself, but I do think this will be fun!)

Frodo and Samwise set out to destroy the Ring
With hardly a single weapon, except for Sting
The journey was hard and long
But Hobbits are very sturdy and strong
The ring was cast into the fire
Then they set off back home to the Shire



This isn't very good, I am sure you Lord of the Ring fans can make up a better one. give it a try

hope you like it, and if you don't, Oh well.

If I were a mod... and not simply the annoying person with the weighty post count and a lot of contacts... I'd move this thread to Prancing Pony... It's a good idea, Sammy. Welcome to the forum... I've posted this before, but it is the only worthwhile Tolkien Poem I've managed... see if you like it.

Aragorn and Arwen


He was a king without a throne,
She Elven princess fair.
He seemed doomed to walk alone,
But she was doomed to care.

With hope beneath the evening sky
They swore to a love so true,
For though it meant that she might die,
They knew what they must do.

She cast aside immortality.
He struggled towards his goal.
Their love seemed wrought in frailty,
But they were bound heart and soul.

He fought the evil darkness
And scorned its evil lord.
She waited until he'd gained success;
He fought with reforged sword.

When at last, his kingdom won,
Before sad good-byes were said
In the white tower, gleaming in sun,
The loyal pair was wed.

She became as human kind.
He was a great king of men.
Forever the Elvish kingdom pined.
She was never among them again.

Good idea, this thread, but if you don't mind I'd like to rename it "Middle-Earth Poetry", to discern it from the original "Poetry" thread. :)
Welcome to the forum, *wise*! ;)

the lord of the rings has inspiered me
to beleve,think and dream like thee
if you no how to think like that to
here is what you should do
help others go the same way,
walk the same path,see the same day
but what you should do most of all
is beleve it yourself and dont let it fall

Hmm... there's quite a lot of typos and grammatical errors, and it definitely needs to be worked on, but for a 5 minute job that's not too bad at all. ;D

Ditto. But simplicity, that's nice. :) Welcome to the forum.
I always make up my poems on the spot too! Not necessarily a great idea, but that's just me. :)
By the way, the thread at the top of the 'Prancing Pony' forum called "Poetry" is a good place for aspiring poets to get acquainted with.

Im not a very good poet but here goes

The journey was long
The fold simple
The journey was long
they set out with just dimples
on their face and a staff in thier hands
THe journey was long
they crosed many countries and many lands
The journey was long

They left their friends
the journey was long
they went around many bends
The journey was long
Their names were frodo and sam wise
Their journey was long
they were against and man evil and wise
Their journey was long

In the end they won
the journey was long
but worth it when it was done
the journey was long
for not only elves did they see
the journey was long
but whome the lived with elves be
the journey was long

Meh i couldnt think of anything that rhymed with long ecept for bong, and that didnt fit.

So sorry for not putting this in the "Prancing Pony" in the first place guys, thanks to whoever moved it into the "Prancing Pony".

Legolas

Legolas is master of the bow
With it he kills many a foe
His aim is very good
And he's clad in Elvish cloak and hood
His golden hair is very long
And his body is also quit strong
Legolas is master of the bow
With it he kills many a foe

P.S. not to good, but I really wanted to write a poem about Legolas. He's one of my favorite characters!:)

Rapid and fatal
His eyes sting with their brightness
Like a Swan's arched neck

Hihi, I've seldom written haiku's, and I've been told that a true haiku can only be written in Japanese or Chinese..
This is a sort of ode to the bow of Oromë.. Or maybe Legolas. :rolleyes:

Does it have to be a certain amount of syllables per line? I can't remember... something like five in the first, seven in the second, five in the last?

Oh well.

I studied it and even memorized a few when I was younger (five). I only remember this one:

I must go begging for water. Morning glories have captured my well...

I can't remember how to break it up into lines. I just liked it... It had a name after it, but I forget what it was (it was in Chinese.).

I could while away the hours
Conferring with the bowers,
Consulting with the thane.
And I'd be a dad of Thorin
Plus a King 'o 'th Folk o' Durin
If I only were a Dain.

I'd unbury every stone
Plus lend many a loan
For profit or for.............gain.
With the gold I'd be a-minin'
I could be grandly dinin'
If I only were a Dain.

Oh, I could tell you why
The gold is in the ground
I could dig up things I'd never dug before
And then I'd sit, and dig some more.

I would not be just an inklin'
Standing dumb and a-blinkin'
My heart all full of pain
I would laugh and I'd be merry
Life would be a dinglederry
If I only were a Dain!


So it needs a little bit of elbow grease and a shoehorn to fit in perfectly...but I like it :D
