November 5, 2019 at 3:05 am by Kelvarhin  - 

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.

The Mirror

by D. McGlinchey

Dare you look into the mirror?
Do you seek to know your fate?
Are you holding on to the life you know?
Or is your quest now far too late?

Have no fear young Hobbit
The mirror is just a guide.
What has gone and what’s to come
Is not always shown inside.

The journey on is lined with fear
But ‘hope’ will see you through.
Your friends are only here for love.
You know what you must do.

Dare you look into the mirror?
Do you seek to know your fate?
Are you holding on to the life you know?
Or is your quest now far too late?

“No dust in our eyes”

Book One, chapter 5, A conspiracy unmasked

by: Theo van de P.

We know you so well,
almost certain what you think.
And we watched you closely,
so you would not disappear in a blink.

Yes, we understand you must go,
and no, we will not keep you.
But it’s a long & dangerous road,
and therefore we must go too.

It’s true that we are horribly afraid,
and we don’t know how it ends.
Indeed, the danger is very dark,
But Frodo, we are your friends.
