Lord of the Rings ( Part 5 )

On thence they went to Lothlorien

home of the Elves,

to learn the fate

of Middle earth and themselves;

Taking counsel with Celeborn

they spoke of many a thing,

though all their thoughts were with the Ring;

Galadriel invited Frodo and Sam

to the water and thereupon gaze,

at future events and far off days;

Fully replenished the party sailed down

the River Anduin with a final decision to make,

the road to the west, the road to the east, which to take?

passing the falls of Rauros they came to rest,

leaving it to Frodo to decide what was best;

Whilst the others stayed together

to quench their fear,

temptation snared the mighty Boromir;

By putting on the Ring

Frodo escaped Boromir’s rage,

deciding then what would be

his journey’s final stage;

Forlorn with remorse Boromir

rejoined the others,

their unity was broken

they were no longer brothers;

They scattered to search

for who they thought lost,

without knowing what would be the cost;

Sam somehow joined Frodo on the boat

and across Anduin they did float;

all before it became too late

as Pippin and Merry snared by Orcs awaited their fate..

    This finely composed narrative poem retains the ambience of Tolkien’s classic.Waiting to see what happens in Part 6 !

    The ease with which the poem flows is in itself a feat that our dear Louis Kasatkin is adept at ! I too endorse the view of my friend Vijay Nair, waiting for the next episode.
