Welcome to The Great Hall of Poets, our regular monthly feature showcasing the talent of Middle-earth fans. Each month we will feature a small selection of the poems submitted, but we hope you will read all of the poems that we have received here in our Great Hall of Poets.

So come and join us by the hearth and enjoy!

If you have a Tolkien/Middle-earth inspired poem you’d like to share, then send it to poetry@theonering.net  One poem per person may be submitted each month. Please make sure to proofread your work before sending it in. TheOneRing.net is not responsible for poems posting with spelling or grammatical errors.

Farewell, Oakenshield

by: Ironfoot

The king lies in earth beside noble kin,
With Arkenstone abreast and sword in hand.
May your mem’ry not fade, son of Durin.
Let your deeds be known beyond northern land.

Whether the world might be sad or merry,
You leave it now, o Thorin Oakenshield.
The journey is long for we who tary,
From great mountain peaks to a green Shire field.

We have gone there and now go back again,
With heart heavy and eyes turned to the west.
Your honor is known by we who remain.
Your journey is over and now you rest.

Forsake hoarded gold and cherish good cheer.
Remember the king and shed not a tear.
