Okay, i have started to make a collection of poems tributing to all three Lord of the Rings movies. So far i have completed two of them. Yes i know, not a lot, but they're in working progress. Roll Eyes Wink
They are told from the perspective of Frodo Baggins looking back on his quest.

Here is my second poem in the collection:

Upon meeting Merry and Pippin

We travelled cross-country, and trudged through dirt,
Miandering all the way,
Travelling lightly, swiftly we moved,
We travelled both night and day.

Through the coulorful fields of the Shire we passed,
Still relaxed and eased,
I remember losing Samwise herbs,
And he was not best pleased.

Still we laughed and joked, and quickly moved on,
And i raced on through the field,
I forgot the last time i ate any food,
And the hole in my belly was filled.

I lost sight of Sam as i rounded the corner,
But i heard him call my name,
I found my way back, and there i stood,
When suddenly footsteps came.

We went to hide but we didn't have time,
We were bounded to the ground,
Looking up i saw Merry and Pippin,
On top of us in a mound.

"Merry, it's Frodo!" Pippin churped,
He pulled me to my feet,
Merry stood up and brushed himself down,
How unlikely we should meet.

Shouts could be heard not far behind,
We were chased all through the field,
Sam toppled us over the steep hill-side,
Thus, becoming our shield.

"Have you been stealing from Farmer Maggot?"
"What this time have you theived?"
"The amount of trouble you two cause"
"Is not so easily achieved!"

This is where our fellowship began,
The story's not easily told,
Follow me closely, and listen up good,
Here's how the events unfold.

I'm having trouble getting the beat of this poem. Specifically the verses that have an extra comma on the third line. The last verse for example.

Seems a good effory though

Really great, I like the way you chose to do it from Frodo's perspective.

Specifically the verses that have an extra comma on the third line.

Technically they are called stanzas they are only verses in songs Tongue

Here is the first poem of the collection. I didn't post it before as i felt it wasn't up to scratch. It still needs work in my opinion but see what you guys think. Smiley

Decisions

Upon the verge of the Shire,
There spoke a loud clear voice,
One containing many meanings,
But about the same hard choice.

"Take the ring that is bestowed to you,"
"But be warned it holds great danger,"
"Travel to the land of Bree,"
"And there you shall meet a ranger".

Do i take the ring? I thought aloud,
In the darkness of the night,
One that unites both it and me,
For i do not wish to fight!

Hours and hours i sat and thought,
In the darkness of my hole,
To destroy the "One Ring" that rules this earth,
Is that to become my goal?

What i f i should die?
Then what shall i do?
Do i just lay in sudden decay,
And pass it onto you?

After hours of thought it had to be done,
The task lay in my hands,
But what's this i wonder, grasping a spade,
That's clearly labbled "Sam's".

"Hello Mr.Frodo, sorry i'm late,"
"What do you want with me?"
"Look here Sam Gamgee i have a task"
"Tell me what do you see?"

"I see a ring Mr.Frodo, a big gold ring,"
"One that looks precious to me,"
"I have never seen one like it before,"
"Tell me what can it be?"

"It is the "One Ring" that rules our earth,"
"It's Lord Saurons i believe,"
"It's our job to destroy it in the fires of Mount Doom,"
"And this we shall achieve".

"Lord Saurons one ring it cannot be true,"
"For it lays within our grasp,"
"I thought he died on the Pellonor Fields,"
"So this cannot be our task!"

"His spirit remains in the ring,"
"It's calling for it's master,"
"Evil comes upon black horses,"
"And they are a whole lot faster".

So out of the door and down the road,
We travelled as quick as we could,
We were not sure if we were making the right choice,
But tried as hard as we should.

Darkness was drawing and the hour grew late,
We stopped and found somewhere to hide,
We each kept watch an hour a turn,
Remaining side by side.

When daybreak hit, we set out to the west,
Travelling in silence all the way,
Danger was growing; it was all around,
Increasing day by day.

I find it really hard to be able to rhyme well, and I think you did it brilliantly. It flows very well too...

Good job  Grin

Awww, well thank you very much. Smiley
Kinda struggling with my next one in the collection actually lol. I've got to the bit where the four hobbits are hiding under the tree trunk and the first black rider comes looking for the ring, and Frodo has the urge to put it on. It's really hard to write in terms of poetry.  dry
